Support Coordinator | Director

Meet Ariel Coordination's founder and Support Coordinator Kate Maslen.

After starting as a support worker, Kate found her passion for the disability community, where she worked in Case Management, Support Coordination and then established Ariel Coordination.

Kate's leap into the the world of support coordination came after she recognised a gap in the Newcastle and Hunter region for proactive coordinators. Sick of seeing no change, she decided to be that change. It is with her passion and years of experience within the disability sector that she continues to support each of her participants to lead fulfilling lives.

In her free time Kate is also the co-founder of the Ariel App, a mobile application that will improve access to information, as well as enhance social and community participation, for people living with a disability.

Meet our Specialist Support Coordinator Bryony Malloy.

Bryony is a recent graduate of UON, completing a Bachelor of Psychological Science. In her free time Bryony enjoys checking out the local cafes and enjoying a good coffee.


Bryony understands the value of quality and focused care as her sister has an intellectual disability, which drives her passion for connecting participants with the best supports suited for them.


Bryony believes that personalised, up-to-date care is one of the most important factors in individuals being able to live fulfilling lives and to reach their full potential. With a passion to learn from tertiary education as well as hands on experience, Bryony is dedicated to providing tailored coordination support.
