Wicks was born in Canberra[1] and raised in Narara and Point Clare. Her first full-time job was as a teacher at her old school in Narara. She left the Central Coast to further a career in the telecommunications industry with Telstra, worked in corporate affairs and communications, and later as a Liberal Party staffer.

She returned to the Central Coast in 2013 to contest the federal election.[2] Although she had been raised on the Central Coast, she was heavily criticised for allegedly being "parachuted" into Parliament.

Wicks narrowly won re-election in the 2016 federal election from Labor candidate Anne Charlton.
