Kelly O’Dwyer was elected the Member for Higgins in the December 2009 by-election and is one of Australia’s newest additions to the Australian Parliament.
Prior to becoming a Member of Parliament, Kelly worked in law, government and banking.
Kelly began her career in the legal sector, working with some of Australia’s largest companies and senior business leaders as part of the Mergers and Acquisitions team at Freehills.
Kelly went on to work as a Senior Adviser to The Hon. Peter Costello, Federal Treasurer for several years before taking on a role in building a new business at the National Australia Bank.
Kelly loves representing the constituents of Higgins and in her spare time can often be found jogging (slowly) along the banks of the Yarra with her husband Jon.
