Wicks was born in Canberra 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. Although she had been raised on the Central Coast, she was heavily criticised for allegedly being "parachuted" into Parliament.
