Principal Speech Pathologist
BSci (SpchPath) MPSA CPSP
My greatest passion is seeing the difference that can be made when I complete comprehensive assessments and really get to the heart of what is underlying the challenges faced by my clients. I have a Bachelor of Applied Science in Speech Pathology and a Specialist Certificate in Neuroscience Research. I have found my niche in literacy, early language, articulation therapy, and myofunctional support for those with orthodontic needs, but over the years have worked with all ages and a wide variety of needs. Our outcome focus drives the intervention that is delivered.
As a Speech Pathologist, I am driven to achieve outcomes that increase participation in daily living tasks for my clients. I have achieved a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Linguistics and also a Bachelor of Health Science majoring in Speech Pathology and language development is very much my passion. As a mum of 3, I have had real-life experience with speech and language difficulties and I pride myself on my ability to give others functional strategies to assist in communication development.
I moved to Warragul in mid-2023 and began working part-time at Bellfield as a speech pathologist. I completed my Master of Speech Pathology at Melbourne University, coming from a previous career in writing and editing. My passion for language and literacy combined with the joy I get from helping people led me to pursue a career as a speech pathologist – I love being able to support others in overcoming their communication challenges to live a more fulfilling life.
With a young daughter of my own, I’ve had personal experience with late talking and understand how these challenges can impact the whole family. I aim to provide therapy that fosters my clients’ growth as an individual while supporting their parents and caregivers.
I joined the team at Bellfield in March 2022. Prior to coming here, I taught English and Maths at Warragul Community House. I was previously a classroom teacher at Warranwood Primary School and then at Ruyton Girls’ School. My husband and I have 3 children, currently aged between 5 and 12. In 2023, we embark on our next stage of the parenting journey; all 3 at school, with 1 at secondary school!
I am so thrilled to be here at Bellfield and I absolutely love seeing my clients develop their Language and Literacy skills. I also run the Cellfield program for reading intervention and am constantly impressed by the massive gains we see in the participants.

I started filling a casual role at Bellfield Speech Pathology in March 2023.
