I set up Speak for Yourself Speech & Language Pathology with the mission;

  • to support people to achieve their full potential in communication using high-quality speech-language pathology services using evidence based practice
  • to empower all people to achieve their right to communicate with autonomy

I am passionate about this mission, and to support families holistically. I believe in equity for all, using innovative technologies (like telehealth) to be a forward thinking and goal focussed service for all Australians.
