BEFORE winning the newly created seat of Jordan in 2017 Charis Mullen had 10 years under her belt working in government and four in a trade union.
She now sits on two parliamentary committees, crime and corruption and innovation, tourism development and environment.
"I had worked in bureaucracy before. A lot was familiar to me. But it's a bigger than job than you ever anticipate," Ms Mullen said.
Ms Mullen said she would continue to hold mobile offices once a month at shopping centres around the region and her door was always open.
