Hi, I’m Skadi...
The founder & creative soul behind Marli & Me™.
Born and raised in Germany, I decided back in 2010 to quit my corporate job in retail management and to travel and work my way around Australia instead. A total of 3 weeks into my time in Perth, many delicious flat whites, fresh chilli mussels and far too many exhausting nights in a 6-bed dorm later, it was time for me to get out of the city and find myself a job. Believe me, sharing a room with 5 strangers every night, after having lived on my own since uni wasn’t as much fun and adventurous as one might think.
As luck would have it, 2 days and one job interview later, I was on my way to a farm job in a little town called Newdegate, situated halfway between Perth and Esperance, in the beautiful Wheatbelt Region of Western Australia.
Who could have known that this job would lead me to the farm of an incredible man, who I now call my husband and, 11 years on, share 2 beautiful girls with, Marli (6) & Evie (4).
I love living and working on the farm and it makes me happy and content seeing my girls grow up among chickens, rabbits, dogs, pet kangaroos, alpacas and our fair share of pet lambs. They are growing up to be 2 kind & free-spirited young girls. Imagine 2 girls with blond hair blowing in the wind, running over paddocks chasing sheep. With just the right amount of sass and self-confidence to make me proud and to keep me on my toes.
