Nadia O'Carroll's association with Tamborine Mountain stretches back to 1977. Nadia and husband Kerry have three adult children, who were all educated on Tamborine Mountain and participated in the community - all the O'Carrolls have been volunteers for local emergency services. Nadia's career experience is as a university qualified accountant, registered tax agent and successful self employed business woman. Nadia was elected as Division 2 councillor in the local government election for the Scenic Rim Regional Council in April 2012. She was Finance Chair 2012 - 2017, Deputy Mayor 2017 - 2018 and is currently chair of the Arts Reference Group. In November 2019 Nadia was appointed as a director on the board of Healthy Land and Water. Nadia has continued her environmental, community and emergency services volunteer activities during her term in council. As a mother and grandmother, Nadia is aware of the many challenges and concerns of modern families. Nadia is politically independent, self funded and is not aligned to any political party. During her time in council Nadia has been prepared to raise contentious issues, argue and advocate vigorously and if necessary vote against the majority. However the reality is that an individual councillor has a single voice in discussions and a single vote of seven in meetings. Her approach, developed over the past eight years, is to research, analyse and understand issues so she is in the best position to formulate, inform, influence and advocate policy, solutions and decisions in discussions, workshops and meetings. Nadia's experience in council and as a long term resident plus academic qualifications, a wide range of vocational and volunteer experience, interest and knowledge of nature and science provide a comprehensive background as a representative of Division 1.
