Biography

I’m Miquela Riley, your local Liberal candidate for the district of Fremantle.
Our community in the southern suburbs is unique. I am standing to represent Fremantle because I want to protect our unique way of life and ensure that all members of our community have the opportunities they deserve to succeed.

My partner Oliver and I live locally in North Coogee with our dog, Yoda.

I work in WA’s construction industry and I previously served for 13 years as a Maritime Warfare Officer in the Royal Australian Navy. Oliver works offshore on a fly-in fly-out roster.

Following my Navy service, we returned to live locally at the start of 2019 and we can’t imagine living anywhere else.

I have spent much of my adult life on deployment as an Officer in the Navy around Australia and the world and I truly believe there is no better place to live than Freo!

Growing up in a single parent household taught me the value of hard work and resilience. I got my first job in the drive-thru at my local McDonalds at the age of 15, before completing my year 11 and 12 studies and joining the Navy.

I graduated from the Australian Defence Force Academy with a Bachelor of Business and have continued distance learning to complete two master’s degrees whilst working full time.

I am a proud member of the Fremantle RSL and the Fremantle Triathlon Club and have previously volunteered my time with aged care residents at Braemer House in East Fremantle.

As a veteran, I understand the importance of supporting our former and current serving Defence Force personnel. We need to help our young veterans as they transition back into the workforce and support our older veterans with the healthcare and support services we owe them for their service to Australia.
