Councillor Lisa O'Malley

Palmyra-Melville-Willagee Ward


I was born and raised in a small country town located in the Strzelecki Ranges of South Gippsland, Victoria. Growing up with practical, loving and hardworking parents alongside four brothers in the open spaces and tightly knit community of Korumburra was a gift beyond measure and continues to shape every aspect of my life to this day.  I completed studies in Health, Fitness and Recreation in 1990 and began formal employment in the Health and Fitness industry as a program manager at the Warragul Leisure Centre in Victoria in 1991. I then followed my heart to Western Australia in 1993 where I arrived with my then boyfriend to live in the suburb of Melville. It is Twenty two years since we began our lives together in WA, a time in which we married, started a business, bought and then subsequently sold and built a home, had our two beautiful children and created our own country style life of community connection in Tamar Street, Palmyra where we continue to live and raise our children.

Professional Experience

I worked full time in the Health and Fitness Industry as a personal trainer and group fitness leader, then as the Centre Manager at two successive gymnasiums from 1993 until 2000. I have experience of working in both the public and private sector and in the time since leaving full time employment in the Fitness Industry I have gained additional knowledge and proven ability in sales and marketing, event management and small business ownership.  My volunteer work includes two previous terms as President of Palmyra Primary School P&C, Co-convenor of Palmyra Together Community Newsletter, Member Co-ordinating Group for Melville Community Association and State Councillor for Fremantle Central with WACSSO (Western Australian Council of State Schools Organisation).


My interests include heading outdoors for fitness and relaxation and spending time with family and friends.
