About Sophie:

Councillor Sophie Tan 2019


My name is Sophaneth (Sophie) Tan and I am excited to be representing the residents of Paperbark Ward in the City of Greater Dandenong.

I am 35 years old and arrived in Australia from Battambang in Cambodia in 1995. I first lived in Springvale with my mother and four siblings and 10 years ago moved to Keysborough. I am incredibly honoured to represent the people of the City of Greater Dandenong.

It is a vibrant and diverse community and a community I am incredibly proud to be part of. I am also very proud to be the first female Cambodian councillor elected in Victoria.

Since I can remember I have also wanted to be a councillor, serving the local community and helping people.

I am a passionate family violence advocate, I care greatly about the environment and community safety is also a very important issue for me.

I have a background in Marketing and Commerce and currently work at the Commonwealth Bank. I also really enjoy travel and interior design.
