MALLEE is nearing the 6-month mark in advanced training and she is putting all her skills together so that she can hopefully be ready for pre-placement testing in the next few months. She is such an eager and happy worker and we are looking towards finding her the perfect person to be matched with once we have completed her pre-placement tests.
