Meet The Team
We’re a talented group of girls…
Founder and CEO
Jane Holmes is the founder and CEO of Support the Girls Australia.
Jane is a Mother. Widow. Survivor. Inspiration.
Jane’s mission to help disadvantaged women reclaim their sense of self-worth is deeply personal as she has walked in their shoes on many fronts. Jane is a very private but headstrong person who is determined to bring change in her calm unassuming way. Jane is the epitome of resilience. This is a skill she has fine tuned through her life’s journey. She brings an energy and passion that is formidable.
Chairperson and Director
Diana Roussi is Managing Director of Hawken Roussi Law.
A tenacious advocate, Diana has practiced as a lawyer since 2007, most of which has been spent claiming compensation for victims of personal injury and neglect, who otherwise would not have the means to access justice.
Experienced with serving those within disadvantaged communities across Queensland and New South Wales (many of whom were victims of trauma), Diana increasingly noticed the prevalence of marginalised women without the ability to escape the cycle of poverty, violence and trauma – without support from someone like her.
Upon leaving school Diane’s working journey started as an apprentice hairdresser working in Adelaide. Family and a move to Canberra in 1972 saw a career change when she acquired a position in administration with N C D C and later with the Cities Commission.
A new opportunity became available with the introduction of Medibank in 1975. During her time with Medibank her duties included, performing quality control on the daily run sheets from around Australia, compiling statistics and eventually assessing and researching the applications for ancillary practioners who were applying for a provider number.
Nicole is a Principal Product Manager at Service NSW who strives to deliver high quality digital products to support NSW citizens.

Nicole worked as a clinical psychologist for over 12 years providing psychological interventions to improve health outcomes. She holds a Master of Psychology (Clinical) degree and enjoys applying behavioural insights to improve customer experiences.
