Marlee Hutton

Marlee Hutton is a Bardi Jawi woman from Broome. She was supported by a MADALAH scholarship to pursue secondary education at Iona Presentation College and tertiary studies at Murdoch University.

Marlee graduated from Murdoch University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Environmental and Marine Science. She chose this area of study because she was inspired by the Kimberley environment she grew up in and the cultural significance of looking after country. Marlee found university challenging but with the financial help of MADALAH, she could focus her energy on her studies without worrying about how to pay for university books, materials and accommodation.

Whilst studying, Marlee worked for AIME as a national presenter and mentored young Indigenous students to empower themselves through education to reach their goals and potential.

Marlee also interned at CSIRO where she is now working full time as a Marine Researcher, with many of her projects based in the Kimberley region. She is really enjoying her role at CSIRO, as she gets to make trips back home and work with the ranger groups and traditional owners to make a positive impact in the community.

“Thank you to MADALAH for the support over my secondary and tertiary studies. Education is so important to helping our mob to feel empowered to contribute to our communities”.
