Deputy Leader of the WA Liberal Party

Libby was elected as a Member of Parliament in a by-election in 2014, following the retirement of former Member for Vasse, Troy Buswell.

She was the Whip in the final year of the Barnett Government.

Following the election of the McGowan Government in 2017, she has held several shadow portfolios including Tourism & Small Business, Transport and Fisheries and was appointed Deputy Leader of the WA Liberal Party in 2020.

The 2021 election result saw her returned as one of only two Liberal members in the Legislative Assembly, losing just 2.1% of her primary vote.

While the outcome was devastating for the party, a strong alliance has been formed with the Nationals, a first in Opposition, which has resulted in constructive teamwork between the two parties both inside and outside Parliament.

Since the 2021 election, Libby has taken on the shadow portfolios of Health, Mental Health, Disability Services and the Prevention of Family and Domestic Violence.

Libby also chairs the Community Development and Justice Standing Committee which is currently conducting an inquiry into sexual harassment against women in the FIFO mining industry.

The inquiry has been supported by the mining industry and has already seen positive change through the implementation of industry-led policies ahead of the final report to Parliament next year.

Libby has a Broadcasting degree from WAAPA and a Masters in Public Administration (Public Policy) from Curtin Business School.

She loves the outdoors, is a keen runner and patron of a number of community groups including the Busselton Repertory Club, Dunsborough Yacht Club and Busselton Tennis Club.

Libby lives in Dunsborough with her winemaker husband, Jonathan Mettam, and their chocolate Labrador Charlie while their daughters are now both undertaking university studies in Perth and Sydney.
