Why did you get into paediatric speech pathology?
I have always been passionate about supporting children to achieve their potential as communicators. Developing good communication skills can change a child’s whole life for the better so being able to help children and their families on that journey was a huge inspiration for me to join the field of Paediatric Speech Pathology.
Why do you love your job?
I love getting to meet all of the children that come to Cooee and supporting them to achieve their potential as amazing communicators. Being able to make a positive impact in the lives of these children and their families is incredibly rewarding!
