Jessica graduated from the University of Technology Sydney with a Master of Speech Pathology. Prior to this she completed a Bachelor of Speech, Hearing and Language Sciences at Macquarie University. She was inspired to become a Speech Pathologist by her passion for working with children and her love of singing and vocal training.
Jessica has experience working across the lifespan in private clinics, community health clinics, via telehealth, hospital settings and disability services. Her previous employment as a support worker has led to an interest in disability and how it intersects with language and literacy. Jessica joined the Speak & Write team in 2022. She has experience treating the areas of speech, language, literacy, voice and fluency (stuttering).
Jessica is passionate about accessibility and client-focused practice. She enjoys building solid and long-lasting connections with clients and their families. She is all about empowerment, self-advocacy and building confidence.
Jessica is trained in the Spalding Method – a comprehensive program for literacy development, DTTC for Childhood Apraxia of Speech and Hanen ‘More than Words’ Program for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. She is also registered with Speech Pathology Australia’s Professional Self Regulation Program.
