Ms Judith Marty
I celebrate my 20th year as a Psychologist in 2017. My work has been informed by my curiousity for people and the learning that our profession provides. If you know me, you know the catch cry -
No-one does psychology like a Psychologist!

I have spent my personal and professional life in rural and remote Australia and it is only in the last four years that I find myself living the 'metro' life. I have worked in the government, non-government and independant practice settings.

My engagement with the APS stretches back to my student days and I have developed (and at times achieved professsional survival) through the networks and opportunities of the APS. I have been Branch Secretary, Chair, State Political Liaison Officer and the DGPP Representative for Western Australia.

I am honoured to hold the role of Perth Branch Chair and represent the members of Perth, Western Australia.

Ms Aleisha Godenzie
Phone: 0408249987
Aleisha is returning to psychology after graduating in 2013 where she also worked with domestic violence survivor's. Having recently worked as a change consultant with WA Police and on large projects at the WA Department of Justice, Aleisha is looking forward to returning to working in one-on-one settings.
Aleisha is also chairperson of the WA United Nations Association of Australia Women’s Committee, UN Day
and is a member of the Executive Committee. Her work with venerable and marginalised groups extends over a decade, working first with offender populations to reduce the harm of offending on those directly involved and the wider community; then directly with Government to create a more effective public service to reduce the likelihood of Western Australian’s becoming involved with crime.
Major achievements include delivery of a $5M data analytic upgrade to a major law enforcement organisation, rolling out a new business unit for a Government department including training.
