Candidate for Flinders
Carolyn Gleixner was born and bred on the Mornington Peninsula. She has had a varied career in construction and international development.
Carolyn has recently worked in Europe, for a German-based construction company. Previous roles included work as a Team Leader for an international organisational development consultant company in Melbourne, specialising in effective change leadership. She has a Building Certificate, Degree in Construction Management and a Masters in Project Management. Her career experience has given her a practical understanding of business efficiency and effectiveness, and a focus on solid outcomes, which she intends to put to good use in Canberra.
Carolyn admits to having a strong practical streak, with a passion for building from early childhood. She is the third generation of her family to actively support the ALP, and is a Member of Emily’s List. She is captivated by the area’s rural and coastal beauty. She is very aware of the many serious economic, environmental and social issues in Flinders, which have been sorely neglected and gone backwards under 15 years of Liberal Party representation.
