The Hon Liz Behjat MLC has had a varied career prior to her election to Parliament. She worked as a paralegal specialising in conveyancing and commercial law. Other career paths involved the racing industry working in a thoroughbred bloodstock agency; and in the hospitality and gaming industry in Tasmania and Perth.
From 1998 until entering Parliament, Liz worked for a number of Federal MPs, including Senators Ian Campbell and Chris Ellison and House of Representatives Members, Don Randall and Michael Keenan in the capacity of Electorate Officer and Campaign Strategist.
Liz’s interests are in the areas of multiculturalism, tourism and law and order. Her decision to become a Member of Parliament was driven by her desire to make a contribution to the community she is part of and to ensure that good governance is delivered to the people of Western Australia, whilst maintaining the Liberal Party she has belonged to since the age of 16.
