Lives in Morwell

Hi, I’m Phoebe from Morwell. I’ve lived in the Latrobe Valley all my life. I’ve studied here, I’ve done my primary, secondary and tertiary studies, and I’m now very lucky to work here as well. I’m a nurse – I specialise in the liver so I help people with viral hepatitis, people with alcohol-related disease and also people with fatty liver.

I’m first generation Australian. My parents were both born in the Philippines and then migrated here in 1989. I love Latrobe because I’ve travelled a lot, done some work in Nepal, in Alice Springs as well and same thing goes every time I come home it’s always that feeling of ‘oh, thank God I’m home’ because this is where my family and my friends are and work is. So I’m very proud to, to say I was born in Latrobe Valley. I’m very lucky to now work in the community. I’m doing what I love and being able to contribute back into the community that has actually brought me up.

I love the strength and compassion of our community. So for me, the strength inspires me. I see that every day where people gather together and they, you know, come up with local solutions to local issues. They advocate for their community, their neighbour, their family, and they come together…

I’ve always felt proud of Latrobe Valley’s rich history surrounding the power generation, despite the controversy it’s drawn in recent years.
