"Kelly has been exceptional for my son and I, from pre-plan, plan review to implementation. Kelly is prompt and efficient, she has extensive knowledge of the NDIS and their systems which allowed Kelly to get the maximum use out of my plan focusing on my goals. She was able to explain my plan and assist me to understand each area of my plan. I would highly recommend Kelly from Sage from pre-planning right the way through."
