Elected to represent Ipswich City Council Division 3 at the 2020 local government elections, Councillor Doyle brings a wealth of corporate experience having worked for almost 25 years as a Corporate Lawyer in the Institutional Banking and Finance sector.
Cr Doyle is passionate about advocating for her residents on a wide range of community issues, not just local government. Better outcomes for our youth, homeless, and fairness and equity for all residents including those most vulnerable and in minority groups are front of mind each day.
Domestic Violence education and awareness, prevention and support is an important priority of Cr Doyle, and she is working to identify opportunities to provide better outcomes for residents in Ipswich who are impacted so terribly by domestic and family violence. Cr Doyle brought a Notice of Motion to Ipswich City Council last year, to formulate a Domestic Violence strategy.

Cr Doyle has a lifelong passion for Ipswich’s famed Colonial, Federation, and timber-and-tin architecture and the city’s many places of historic and cultural significance.
In 2021, Cr Doyle was the first Ipswich City councillor appointed to the Queensland Heritage Council.
