Andrea Kyle-Sailor is a proud Birri Gubba Traditional Owner and a proud Bwgcolman Historical Owner from Palm Island and reside permanently on Palm Island.

She is a Community Development Worker for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Legal Service on Palm Island. She says her position is challenging, rewarding and she enjoys working for her community. She holds a Bachelor of Laws completed through Deakin University externally and she's presently completing her PLT through QUT. Andrea only completed a law degree as she could not understand how the law applied to people on Palm Island, whilst she was employed by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service.

In April 2020 Andrea was elected to the Local Government Council as a Councillor. She is a strong advocate for all issues facing her community but more so for the woman of her community.
