My name is Zaneta Mascarenhas - like Anita but starting with a "Z".
I was born in Kalgoorlie and grew up in Kambalda - a nickel mining town where dad was a fitter and mum the kindy cleaner.
When I was 18, I moved to Perth to study science and engineering at Curtin University and since then, in my 15 year career as an engineer, I’ve worked in dozens of sites across regional WA and Victoria.
For the last 8 years, my husband and I have lived in East Victoria Park, where we are now raising our two children, Lincoln and Felicity. We love living here and are committed to our local community.
As your Member of Federal Parliament, I’ll be on your side, fighting passionately for families like mine here in Swan, and working tirelessly with you for a strong and fair society.
