Meet Our Speech Pathologist Jackie Parsons
With over 10 years’ experience as a speech pathologist, Jackie is a welcome addition to the A Growing Understanding team.
After graduating from the University of Newcastle in 2007, Jackie gained hands-on experience in both private and not-for-profit sectors. Jackie has developed skills and an understanding of those with special needs, thanks to her time within disability services.
I love it because it’s a job where you get to really help people, but have so much fun in the process!
It’s the first company I’ve worked for where I feel truly valued as a clinician. I love how we celebrate all our clients, as well as each other.
I’m a reality TV junkie. The Bachelor, Masterchef, Survivor, MAFS… love it all!
Any good murder mystery!
