I love the sounds of English. I earned my B (Communication Pathology) cum laude in the previous century. That means I am a qualified, registered speech language pathologist (speech therapist!) and audiologist.
I started working at a rural school while doing my MA (AAC) which I completed cum laude in 2002. When I realised I was teaching English as much as doing therapy (and loving both!) I bravely enrolled for PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education). This I completed in 2004, majoring in English and Learner Support (cum laude). I continued teaching mainly English to regular classes until 2016.
In the afternoons I ran the school’s bridging program to help learners with a different home language, adapt better to having English as their language of learning and teaching.
Now I run my own practice where I focus on pre-teens who struggle to read or spell or articulate. I love including mothers in therapy and I love doing online consultations and training.
