Re-elected: 2012, 2016
Cr Armstrong began life in rural South East Queensland, growing up on a small dairy farm. No tertiary education in the area prompted her move to Brisbane to complete her qualifications in Nursing / Midwifery. Subsequently her work in health has been in Queensland and Western Australia before settling 20 years ago in Hamilton.
Raising a family of three, working in primary and preventative health with the Western District Health Service and farming with her husband Geoff at Branxholme has shaped her passion for the future wellbeing of the Southern Grampians community.
Cr Armstrong was first elected to Council from 1999 – 2000 as Cr Jansen and was re-elected to Council on 27 October 2012.
Cr Armstrong represents Council on the Community Advisory Committee and Grampians Landscape Assessment Steering Committee. She is also the substitute delegate for the Waste Reduction Group, Grangeburn Stakeholders Advisory Group and Hamilton Community Parklands Bandicoot Enclosure Advisory Committee.
