Councillor Sophie Wade



Cr. Sophie Wade is a Nicholls Ward Councillor and the current Mayor of Yarra.  

Sophie Wade has lived in and around Yarra for most of her life - from her days crossing the Darebin Creek to primary school in Alphington, to socialising at cafes and bars in Fitzroy as a young adult, to playing netball in Clifton Hill.

Sophie now lives in Collingwood, and loves being a part of the vibrant and bustling Smith St precinct.

Prior to her election to Council, Sophie worked as a competition and consumer lawyer at a large international firm, working mainly for regulators. Sophie also does pro bono work at Refugee Legal in Collingwood.

Sophie cares about the climate, inequality, participation in democracy and making the world both greener and fairer. She would love to hear about what you want to see in Yarra.
