Hannah Beazley, Labor’s candidate for Swan, was born and raised in the community, and has spent over half her life living and working here.
In her early 20’s, Hannah was diagnosed with a rare blood disease and given five years to live. After living in pain for many years, Hannah participated in a medical trial for a new drug that saved her life. Hannah owes her life to the public health system, and will always fight to ensure that all Australians have access to quality healthcare.
Hannah is the proud mum of two boys, one of whom has extra needs. She knows first-hand the challenges families face in accessing the services they need and deserve.
Over the last 20 years, Hannah has worked across various industries. Hannah built and managed her own successful retail business, and created local jobs. For the better part of the last decade, Hannah has held senior management roles in the primary, secondary and tertiary education sectors. She has also been a policy advisor within government and speechwriter to two Labor Premiers – Dr Geoff Gallop and Mark McGowan.
Hannah continues volunteering in her community. She serves on the governing committee of her youngest son’s community childcare centre, and is Belmont Business Enterprise Centre’s board.
