I love Speech Pathology for so many reasons! I love that we can build relationships with families and create a safe space to support children to fulfil their potential. I love that we get to come to work every day and empower children and their families to develop communication and feeding skills. I love we get to share in the joy of achieved goals and meaningful communication experiences.
I love A Growing Understanding as our values of CARE strongly align with my personal values. It is amazing to work with a team of strong women who are so dedicated to providing exceptional service and care to all of their families.
