Marie has been Executive Officer at Interchange for 6 years, building on her extensive career in supporting individuals and families at University of Melbourne, MS Australia, Wavecare and Yooralla. Marie has tertiary qualifications in Education, Special Education, Social Work, Counselling and Business Management. She feels privileged to reflect on her experience in supporting and managing a large number of staff and volunteers from a diverse background in working with families and participants to achieve their goals and aspirations.
Throughout her career, Marie has always prioritised the positive engagement and support of her clients, staff and volunteers in understanding that their wellbeing and commitment is paramount to building a healthy positive culture, be it within a home, the workplace or a community setting. Marie has always been a volunteer herself, having recently trained as a Manager Spontaneous Emergency Volunteers in times of crisis or emergency and sat on the Interchange Board for the past 3 years.
With the advent of the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Marie is excited to be in a position to help co-create an even more responsive and innovative organisation, well equipped and competent to support participants and families as they transition to this new framework of thinking and designing services to meet individual needs for inclusion and community participation.
