Auscare support is excited to introduce you to Paula Marshall. Paula is one of the Support Coordinators assisting NDIS participants in the Shoalhaven and South Coast areas of NSW.
Paula is passionate about assisting her clients to achieve their goals, build their capacity, and exercise choice and control over the supports they receive and how they receive them.
Paula has a background as a Customer Service Manager in local government and as an Accounts Manager in small business. Although she is new to the disability sector, the skills she has developed in customer service and in her own personal experience caring for her son for the past 19 years – who has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – has given her unique insight into the challenges NDIS participants face and the support they need.
The most rewarding part of her role as an Auscare Support Coordinator is the ability to make a positive impact on a person’s life. Paula also enjoys learning new things and the friendly and supportive team she works with.
In her spare time, Paula likes to get out into the garden, go boating and bushwalking. She also enjoys spending time with her husband and two teenage sons.
Auscare Support is proud of its reputation for providing the highest level of service to our clients. If you are an NDIS participant looking to engage a Support Coordinator or a service provider exploring Support Coordination services on behalf of a client, please contact Paula today.

A Moment with Paula Marshall
Why did you pursue a career in the disability sector?

What do you like most about working at Auscare Support?
The people I work with are friendly and helpful. I am learning new things all the time and I love the flexibility.
Favourite musician or band...
Too many to list. I love music!
Do you have a favourite saying or inspirational quote?
As I try and always look for the positives in everything, I saw this one day and liked it: “Be the reason someone smiles today”.
Do you have any pets?
I have a Miniature Foxie, Missy. I also have two black cats, Luna and Coco.
If you could invite anyone to a dinner party (past or present), who would it be?
Robyn Williams - because I like to laugh.
Favourite holiday destination...
Anywhere as long it was next to a river or beach.
Don't just take our word for it
