Michelle Leanne Landry (born 15 October 1962), Australian politician, is a Liberal National Party of Queensland member of the Australian House of Representatives since September 2013, representing the Division of Capricornia, Queensland.[1]

Landry was born in Rockhampton, Queensland. She ran a local book business before entering politics in 2010, when she contested the seat of Capricornia for the first time. Her opponent, long-term Labor MP Kirsten Livermore defeated her in a 54-46 two party preferred vote, but this translated into an 8% swing to the LNP. Following the retirement of Livermore in 2013, Landry won the seat.
