New Leadership in the South East

Written on the 18 July 2018

Community Living Australia has experienced substantial growth within our teams this year and our South East in particular has acquired many new faces to ensure we provide the highest quality of services possible and create value for our clients.

The team is made up of dedicated professionals with extensive disability service knowledge, local knowledge and utmost commitment to providing excellent client care. 

Sue Stuart

Many people probably already know Sue from her role as Regional Manager for the Adelaide Hills, Strathalbyn and Riverland region. Due to her can-do ability and unwavering commitment to clients and families, Sue has also taken the South East under her wing.

Sue is committed to providing quality services and developing services needed to meet client needs saying "we are striving to create a team culture that leads to real, ongoing positive outcomes for our clients." 

Sue Norton

Sue joined Community Living Australia in March as the South East Regional Coordinator. She has extensive experience in the disability sector having worked in many roles including service coordinator, quality coordinator and support worker.

Her last role as Placement Facilitator and Lecturer at TAFE SA saw her deliver training directly related to the disability sector.

Sue is highly focused on staff mentoring and development and doing the best she can for clients. 

Taylah Plate-McPartlan

Taylah also joined the team in March to oversee Mt Gambier Day Options, In-Home Support and Social Support. 

Growing up in Mt Gambier, she undertook studies in disability after moving to Western Australia where she initially worked as a support worker, then support supervisor.

She relocated back to Mt Gambier this year and looks forward to continuing her work within the sector.

Passionate, approachable and a strong advocate for clients, Taylah is already proving popular with clients. 

Leanne Grosser

Leanne brings with her an extensive six years' of experience as a Senior Support Worker, leading a team that supported teens with intellectual disabilities. 

Leanne has a strong client focus and believes that staff need to be supported and engaged to provide the best service possible to clients.

She commenced with Community Living Australia in April and oversees a number of accommodation services.

With the addition of our new team members to the client services management team, our South East team is highly skilled, passionate and committed to providing services that meet our clients' needs in the local community.

Joining existing team members Cynthia Gerritsen the Regional Support Officer, Nadine Long one of our Team Leaders and Laura Hann the Intake Officer as well as our group of amazing support workers, we warmly welcome them and we look forward to benefitting from the skills, experience and passion that they bring to the region.
