Why did you become a speech pathologist? 

I dove right into speech pathology after high school, as it seemed to be the perfect combination of science and language with new things to discover. During my clinical placements, I really found myself drawn to the practical ‘hands-on’ side of the field! I’ve always enjoyed working with children and I’m keen to give back to local communities. 

What do you love most about your job? 

Being there for the journey and providing support for children and their families as we progress week by week! There are so many different things that we see as part of our work, and each child that I’ve met has their own story and unique way of seeing the world. 

What is your favourite children’s book? 

For younger kids? Definitely fun and interactive books, with flaps to lift and furry or bumpy spots to feel. Personally, I also remember enjoying gruesome horror stories and humorous non-fiction books, such as the Horrible Histories series, when I was younger!
