Rachel

Speech Pathology Team Leader

As Team Leader, Rachel works with range of clients who have communication and swallowing difficulties. Providing assessment and management for a range of difficulties including swallowing, voice, language, speech, fluency and AAC, Rachel’s goal is always to help her clients improve their safety and quality of life.

Pursuing Speech Pathology out of a desire to work closely with those in need in a personalised, one-to-one setting, with a focus on developing the skills and knowledge to make people’s day or change their life, Rachel’s personal motto is to be a better person each and every day in some way shape or form.

Rachel holds a Bachelor of Speech Language Pathology (Honours) from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand.

When not trying to change the world for the better, Rachel loves to spend time outdoors, utilising her knack for scanning the local landscape for a range of deadly Australian animals and insects!
