Cr Cyndi Power was born and raised in Illinois, part of the Corn Belt of the USA, and educated at Illinois State University.
She made the permanent move to Mildura in 2008 to raise her four children, and proudly became an Australian citizen in 2013.
She is a local business owner, a childbirth educator and a vocal advocate for safe and positive maternity/birthing services. Cr Power is also a student of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy and will go into practice as a therapist in 2021.
Cr Power looks forward to being part of a Council that fosters trust and is genuinely approachable.
Her interests in becoming a Councillor stem from her years of work with local parents in their journey to parenthood. She takes a strong interest in support for the mental and physical wellbeing of new parents and the region’s youngest residents.
Cr Power’s goal is to attract several new practitioners to our wonderful area to set up business, particularly in the areas of women’s health, birth services, and mental health. It is also her goal to ensure the vulnerable members of our community receive the assistance they need, and those who provide the assistance have the support and funding they require.
With two children still at home, Cr Power’s life very much revolves around their needs, which she is proud of. When not working or studying, she loves getting her hands dirty gardening, and enjoying water sports on the Murray River. Cr Power has a keen interest in native gardening and respect for/conservation of Australian flora and fauna. She recently joined Gender Equity Action Sunraysia and looks forward to being a part of this dynamic organisation.
