Our Leader

Meet Mia

Mia was elected to the State Parliament in 2008 to represent the Agricultural Region in the Legislative Council. In 2013 she became the Member for Central Wheatbelt and been returned at each election to continue in this role.

In 2017 she was elected as Parliamentary Leader of The Nationals WA becoming the first female leader of the National Party in Australia.

Following the 2021 State election, she became the Leader of the Opposition in Western Australia, marking the first time a member of The Nationals WA has held the role since 1947.

Born and raised in the Wheatbelt, Mia lives in Northam and remains a passionate advocate for improving infrastructure and services in regional Western Australia. Along with her team, she believes that our State can only truly grow and achieve its full potential if everyone has access to opportunity and a fair go and your postcode shouldn’t determine your education, access to healthcare or employment opportunities.

Before entering Parliament, Mia worked as a policy adviser for the Leader of the Parliamentary National Party, Executive Officer – North West at the Chamber of Minerals and Energy, and at Jandakot Airport as the business park and commercial centre was developed. She holds a Bachelor of Marketing and Media from Murdoch University.
