Sharon Armstrong has continued as a committee member and Deputy Chair for RDA Moreton Bay in 2022 and a supporter of Moreton Bay Regional Council’s push to become a city.

She was involved in a panel discussion hosted by Moreton Bay Regional Council in May during which she supported the bid to pursue city status.

The co-owner of Embrace Life at North Lakes supports the concept as a small business owner, but also someone who can see the opportunities the change would create for the region.

Embrace Life embodies her passion for family and community health and wellness and is a business she started with co-owner Kathryn Bishop in 2009.

Sharon holds a master’s degree in Nursing and BSc Public Health that underpin her drive for growing healthy communities.
