Peree has lived in the Upper Hunter her entire life, having raised her three children here and now living with her husband Ian in Branxton.
Peree wants to ensure the many diverse communities of the Upper Hunter receive their fair share of government resources and support. She believes the community deserves better healthcare, quality education and secure employment.
As the daughter of the late former President of the United Mineworkers Union, Mick Watson, Peree knows the importance of hard work and collaboration to deliver for the community.
Peree has worked across the accounting, hospitality, management, and journalism fields before moving into the not-for-profit industry. She has also volunteered at her local playgroup, for her kid’s schools and football committees.
For the last 15 years, Peree has worked as a fundraiser for charities supporting some of the most vulnerable in our community, including the Hunter Medical Research Institute, the Leukaemia Foundation, Hunter Children’s Research Foundation, the Mark Hughes Foundation and the domestic violence charity Got Your Back Sista.
