Specialities: Speech Pathologist
Locations Serviced: Perth, Goomalling, Moora, Wongan Hills
I graduated from Curtin University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science (Speech Pathology). During my studies, I worked as a support worker for a child with Autism and as a therapy assistant. During this time, I discovered a passion for working with children.
Since completing my studies I have worked for a Perth based mobile private paediatric company where I enjoyed working with a diverse range of clients, delivering both school and home based services. At KZ Speech I enjoy working both in Perth and in the country.
I am passionate about providing client centred therapy by working closely with both the child and their family to create functional and tailored goals. I value approaching intervention in a holistic, creative and fun way, to motivate and assist children in reaching their full potential.
I am particularly interested in the area of late talking, having completed certification to provide the Hanen It Takes Two to Talk program. Other areas of interest include working with children with a range of disabilities and children with speech and language delays.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I often spend a weekend seeing my parents at the farm I grew up on, where I get to see my dogs Bella and Harold. I love baking, eating, reading and watching the football.
