Andrea Creado was born in India and migrated to Australia in 2001. She has lived in the City of Stirling since then and is currently the CEO of a multicultural women’s health organisation with over 20 years’ experience of working in the non-profit sector. As a community leader she has responded to local needs by establishing services in health, physical activity, parenting and family violence.
Andrea lives, works, shops and uses recreational facilities locally in the Balga Ward, hence she is constantly advocating for local needs.

She has experience in leading people, establishing programs and thinking at strategic and operational levels in both government and in the non-government community-based services sector. She is often invited to contribute her knowledge and experience of working with multicultural communities by sitting on various Boards, management committees and reference groups.
Andrea was elected to council in October 2021 and her priorities are increasing services for seniors, people with disabilities and other vulnerable groups; improving community safety, improving local parks and amenities and advocating for good environmental practices.
Besides working full time in the non-profit sector and being a councillor with the City of Stirling, Andrea is a mother to two children and a dog. In her spare time Andrea loves to walk, cycle, dance, cook, read and listen to music.
