Like many people in Liverpool, Charishma migrated to Liverpool as a young girl. She is honoured to represent the area in which she grew up, went to school and has worked in.
Before entering Parliament, Charishma had extensive experience working in the health sector. As an occupational therapist, Charishma understands the health and wellbeing needs of our growing community in south west Sydney, and has seen first-hand the neglect of public schools and TAFE. Charishma is also a councillor on Liverpool City Council and deeply understands the importance of being connected and accessible within our community.
