Putting pen to paper on the big issues impacting Australia and indeed the globe is important to her as is actively bringing about the change she wishes to see in the world. An avid supporter of gender equality and sustainability she and her husband have built and promoted a sustainable home and role modelled the benefits of two parents ‘sharing the work’ and ‘sharing the caring.’ Cilla laments the lack of Vision and collaboration in political life in Australia and hopes to help change things.
