Professional Experience

I have been working as a speech pathologist since graduating in 2003 from the University of Newcastle. I began my career at Ageing, Disability & Home Care, working at ADHC for 17 months, I then worked for Firstchance Inc from 2005-2013. My career has allowed me to develop my skills in paediatric communication and swallowing disorders providing services for children of all ages ranging from babies, preschool, transition to school and school age.

I am trained in a number of Hanen programs ‘It Takes Two to Talk’, ‘More Than Words’, ‘Learning Language and Loving It’ and registered to run ‘Teacher Talk’.
I am a member of Speech Pathology Australia  and Early Childhood Intervention Australia. I complete a professional self-regulation program each year.
My particular interests in speech pathology are language acquisition, speech sound disorders, literacy development, language disorders and augmentative and alternative communication.

Additional qualifications include:
Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS)
DIR/Floortime
Key Word Sign
Proloquo2go
Sarah Starr feeding workshop
