Cr Seema Abdullah (Deputy Mayor)

I grew up in Pakistan and migrated to Australia about 12 years ago.

I am a PMI (Project Management Institute) certified Project Management Professional. My qualifications include a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Science in Information Systems, from London School of Economics. I moved to Shepparton about eight years ago with my husband and two children due to my husband's work commitments.

As a councillor, I aim to bring my passion for community combined with the skill-set and competence to provide team leadership and deliver positive outcomes.

My interests include reading, gardening, cooking, listening to music and spending time with family and my large circle of friends.

While on Council, one of my goals is to provide strong leadership for the promotion of the positive aspects of our region and towns within Greater Shepparton. I would like to be a strong advocate for everything that is needed to enhance the liveability and attractiveness of our towns for residents and tourists.

There are a number of things that are great about our region. We have a strong sense of community, multicultural mix, diversity, openness and acceptance within the community, a beautiful lake, river, river walks, trees, open spaces, sporting facilities and relaxed pace of life within two hours of Melbourne.
