I pay my respects to the traditional custodians of the Dharug/ Darug peoples on the land in which I work.

Director

The crew at Marli and Moe are led by Jemma, who herself, through her daughter Marli, has navigated the NDIS system since its infancy. As a neurodivergent person herself raising a neurodivergent little person she is aiming for equality, inclusivity and understanding!

Jemma struggled to find the support she needed for Marli, so she helped create it! Her passion for others in the same situation grew, and she underwent the necessary steps to fulfill an underserviced area at the time.

Jemma has supported a diverse group of clients with ranging diagnoses, but she has had most of her success supporting people with degenerative diseases, complex trauma, terminal illnesses, rare diseases, and high complexities / high needs. She supports these clients and their families to navigate the NDIA plus other services available to them.

The personal achievements and stories of clients over the years is what fuels Jemma & the Marli and Moe crew every day, through the ups and downs, together!

Executive Assistant

Susie has an extensive history in Administration and Customer Service. Her experience spans over 40 years working for varied companies and has found herself in a unique position working alongside such a caring, dedicated, and compassionate team. They inspire her to strive to better herself, but most importantly to help make our world safer, more tolerant, and accepting of our differences.

Susie's darling granddaughter suffered a stroke as a direct result of contracting Pneumococcal Meningitis as a baby and consequently, has an ABI, hearing impairment, and learning difficulties. Susie's family felt so alone and scared for her future.

At the time the NDIS was in its infancy and very difficult to navigate. Today thank goodness we have professionals to guide us and help us through our difficult times. Susie is proud to be included in the Marli and Moe family and is in awe of our Support Coordinators and Specialist Support Coordinators.
