I’m Dr Monique Ryan, your Member of Parliament for the federal seat of Kooyong.

I’ve lived in Kooyong most of my life, and my husband and I are raising our children here. 

Prior to entering parliament in May 2022, I was a paediatric neurologist, medical researcher, and head of neurology at the Royal Children’s Hospital.

I left a career I loved because I believed the people of Kooyong deserved an Independent MP who would represent their values in Canberra. 

Thanks to the support of our incredible community, I was elected to advocate for urgent action on climate change, integrity in politics, and a strong and sustainable economy.   

As a doctor, I worked hard and always acted with care and compassion. It’s what I do now as your Independent Member for Kooyong.
