Nina Springle

MLC for South Eastern Metropolitan, 
Deputy Leader of the Victorian Greens

In 2014, Nina became the first Greens MP to represent the South Eastern Metropolitan Region in Victoria’s Parliament. She brings over a decade’s experience in social justice, women’s rights, public health and community development.

Nina has worked as a consultant in the community and education sector for over a decade. She brings dedication to healthy outcomes in the community to everything she does; whether it’s developing policy for the Centre for Excellence for Child and Family Welfare, acting CEO of Asbestoswise or writing educational resources for the TAFE sector.

Nina is well established in the South East of Melbourne where she raises her two kids in the family home built by her grandfather in the 1960s. She loves the diversity of the electorate which represents the full social and economic range of multicultural Melbourne.

Nina pays ongoing respect to the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation and acknowledges that the many Aboriginal nations of Australia represent the longest continuous culture in the world.

Nina is the Victorian Greens spokesperson for Health, Children & Families, Youth Justice, Women, Older People, Plastic Pollution, Employment, Industrial Relations, and Industry & Investment.
