Jo Chapley

  • Candidate for Adelaide

Biography

For years, I have worked in the local area for my family business and understand the efforts behind running a business and managing teams of people. I take a keen interest in the issues that impact on small and medium businesses and the people who work in them.

I am a qualified mediator who has worked as a commercial and employment lawyer for many years, both in public and private sectors and currently in the family organisation. I am experienced in obtaining positive outcomes.

A passion for Government policy saw me obtain Honours in that field. I am committed to being an effective link between our community and the State Government.

The importance of an effective health system is paramount in any compassionate society. This is especially so for the disadvantaged in our communities. I have volunteered at the Royal Adelaide Hospital in the Aboriginal Liaison Unit, where I use my Pitjantjatjara language skills to help patients.

In addition to my legal qualifications and language skills, I have a Masters degree in Aboriginal studies.

The issue of quality education is also a great passion of mine and this has led me to continue to serve on the parent bodies of two schools.

My family and I are supporters of local schools, sporting groups and community groups. I am hardworking, energetic and ready to commit to working for our community and improving our local area.
