AS a working mother, Pauline Hanson's One Nation candidate for Cook in the upcoming Federal election Gaye Cameron is used to doing the hard yards.
Ms Cameron says her passion for the community comes from being part of it for more than 30 years.
She contested the NSW Seat of Miranda in the recent State election, achieving 7.05 per cent of the vote, surpassing the Greens, and is now taking on the fight for Cook, against sitting member - and Prime Minister - Scott Morrison.
Ms Cameron said she had a "solid depth of working experience", including all tiers of government, construction and development, disability and the health and education sectors and has spent time as a psychotherapist counsellor.
She has also been a volunteer with the State Emergency Service, as a regional/local controller for 13 years, where she assisted at natural disasters including the 1994 Sutherland Bushfires, 1997 Thredbo Landslide, and 1999 Sydney hailstorm.
"I have also been on local government, Port Botany Authority and Sydney District Disaster Planning committees, and in recent times was the residential representative for the Sutherland Shire Council Flood Planning Committee," she said.
"I am passionate about community. It's what brings people together to identify problems and resolve together.

"Our government has lost touch in consulting with their constituents. I want to be the voice for Cook and take issues head on in Canberra."
The former Liberal Party member said: "The Liberals have simply lost their way. They do not represent the true conservatives any more and you can no longer tell the difference between Labor and Liberal".
Ms Cameron said she had always admired the guts and determination of Senator Pauline Hanson. "Her party's policies and values fit with me, and I strongly believe Pauline Hanson's One Nation represents more of what our nation needs," Ms Cameron said.
She said her four main policies for the Federal election were: capping immigration at 70,000 per year and encouraging settlement away from capital cities; a fairer deal for pensioners; low-cost and low emission coal-fuelled power stations; and a better approach to climate change.
