I have been a Revenue Professional in Local Government since 2015 initially at the Rural City of Murray Bridge and then from November 2019 at the Campbelltown City Council.
Prior to that, I had worked in customer service and finance roles, so working in rates is ideal for me as both skillsets are required.
I joined the Revenue Professionals SA as a Board Member in February 2018 as when I was a new Rates Officer I found the support received from the RPSA & my fellow members was invaluable to being able to perform the role. I am passionate about helping new Revenue Professionals by having a forum for them to ask questions, informative resources readily available, to share information & keep members up to date with the many changes that occur within our industry to assist them in their roles.
I took on the role of President for RPSA in early 2020 and have found it challenging yet rewarding. Facing the events that have been affecting our industry and our world, with the need to adapt quickly to our ever-changing new ‘normal’.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family & friends, reading, watching movies and card making.
I look forward to working with the Board to continue to support our members.

I began my Local Government career in 2005 with the Mount Barker District Council Records team before starting in the Rates department in early 2006. The challenges of rating have given me the appetite to develop my knowledge in the field with the completion of a number of Local Government qualifications with a Rates focus.
Mount Barker District Council is one of the fastest growing councils in Australia offering outstanding lifestyle and business opportunities within a diverse and progressive community, currently there are approximately 18,100 assessments in the district.
I like to spend the majority of my time outside of work with my young family and have a passion for cricket, footy and motorsport.
I have more than 20 years office experience and Local Government experience in various roles and areas including administration, program/project coordination, governance and events management. I worked at the Local Government Association of SA for 14 years in various positions from administration up to management and at the Town of Gawler for four years as a Governance Officer. I created Think Purple Solutions (TPS) in 2013 to assist businesses to achieve goals and objectives without the need to accommodate an in-house staff member. As owner and operator of Think Purple Solutions, I provide services to businesses including:
I began my career in Local Government in 2011; fresh out of high school, as the District Council of Mount Remarkable’s administration trainee. After a short stint in the private sector, I returned to the District Council of Mount Remarkable in 2015 and now work in an administrative role, predominantly within our rating department. However I am somewhat a “Jack of all trades”, supporting other Council departments including building and development, environmental health, records, works, finance and even the Melrose post office, amongst other areas. I am currently studying UniSA’s Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) and am involved in a number of local volunteer groups.

I started my career as a Revenue Professional at the City of Onkaparinga in 2015, spending only a short time there before moving to City of Prospect and since 2020 I am now the Senior Rates Officer at City of Salisbury.
Prior to my LG career, I studied a degree in Commerce (Accounting) and then spent time as a Tax Accountant and an Accounts and Payroll Manager in the private sector. With that experience, and a passion for customer service is what makes being a Revenue Professional appealing to me. I love the diverse and challenging nature of working in a Rates and Revenue Team.
Outside of work, I love cooking, spending time with my husband and our dog and socialising with friends. We also enjoy camping holidays and visiting my family in country Victoria.
I started working for Rural City of Murray Bridge in 2009 as a Records Officer. I was in records for about 5 years until I transferred to the finance department as the Accounts Receivable Officer. After about a year of just doing Accounts receivable I started assisting in the Rates area. I just did basic rates tasks but after a while I took over all the debt collection for rates. Just recently I have stopped doing accounts receivable and now solely work in rates. I am currently studying the Diploma in Local Government – Rates through Norman Waterhouse.

I have worked in Local Government for more than 10 years and have spent the last 5 years working in the area of Rates. It’s a speciality area of Local Government and there is lots to learn and I think this is what I like most about the role. I stepped up to the position of Rates Officer for a regional council, and as is often the case, had to come up to speed within a short space of time. It really was the generosity of time and knowledge of some local rating professionals that helped me to survive the first twelve months and I am very grateful for this. I’ve been at City of Prospect for twelve months now and am really enjoying working for a metropolitan council and the different challenges it presents. Like most of us here, I have joined RPSA in the hope that I can assist others to navigate their way through this dynamic area of Local Government.
Outside of work, I like to keep myself busy with study, reading, oil painting, house reno projects and gardening.
I studied at university in Bristol (England) and moved to Australia in 1994.
After many years of hard work and commitment, being recognised as a key legal adviser to local government in South Australia both by clients and my peers in the ‘Best Lawyers Awards’, it was in 2012 that, together with Natasha, I took the opportunity to open our boutique legal practice, KelledyJones Lawyers.
My areas of expertise are all matters ‘local government’ whether legislative in nature or common law based. I provide legal advice including in a strategic, political and business context in contentious, sensitive and difficult matters. I enjoy presenting at sector conferences (both nationally and within South Australia) and have been widely published in local government publications.
Outside of the office I am a bit of a “foodie” and look forward to spending time in the kitchen trying out recipes (in particular, making them pescatarian or vegetarian-friendly). I enjoy watching my boys play sport and spending time with my (nearly four going on fourteen) daughter at our home in the Adelaide Hills.

I have worked in Local Government with the City of Victor Harbor since 2005. Starting as a trainee on the Horse Tram, I then moved into a Customer Service position where my introduction to Rates started. After a short period as an Assistant Rates Officer, I then took on my current role of the Seniors Rates Officer in 2009.
Like many of us, I took on the challenge with no procedures and had to learn on the go. Having experienced the importance of networking and relying on fellow rates officers for guidance and assistance, this has given me a passion for helping new members and passing on my knowledge.
