Representation Area:Latrobe Valley
Organisations involved in:Morwell Neighbourhood House / Latrobe City Council
I’m a mum of 3 teenagers , married to Simon who works for the CFA and I am currently a Latrobe City Councillor.
I have managed Morwell Neighbourhood House since 2012. I have championed much needed initiatives resulting in the Morwell Neighbourhood House becoming a vital hub of support for the Latrobe Valley. The nature of my work means community from across Latrobe have unfettered access to me on a daily basis. This has given me insight into the challenges we face in the region and the solutions the community have to deal with them, support our region to grow and navigate a sustainable future.
In 2014 when the Hazelwood Mine Fire broke out just 400 meters from the heart of Morwell, I stepped into a communications and advocacy role for the residents of Morwell providing them with up to date information and support. I became a tenacious and fierce advocate for all who were affected by the fire. I have continued to be an advocate for our community to this day.
I strongly believe that investment in and support of the community improves health and wellbeing, resilience, and employment opportunities.
The thing I love most about living in Latrobe is the people & community. I have never lived in a place that embraces a rich diversity of people & says we’ve got your back if you need us. I love the abundance of walking tracks like the rail trail, the pathways connecting our towns, I use them most weekends. The liveability of the region is the reason me and my family have made our home in Latrobe.
