Speech And Language Pathologist

Sunshine Coast

  • Works with adults
  • Works with children

It’s that passion that drives her commitment to clients facing difficulties with communication and swallowing.

“Eating is more than something we do to live. It’s social. Quality of life includes being able to eat with friends!”

As a speech and language pathologist, Chelsea is well-trained to evaluate a client’s speech, language, fluency, literacy, voice and swallowing skills and develop an individualised plan to address development or disorders.

Her expertise extends to non-verbal communications, helping clients choose assistive technologies that can positively affect the rest of their lives.

While much of Chelsea’s work is with children, she also works with adults – including clients whose progressive conditions will one day rob them of the ability to speak. Supported preparation for such loss can reduce frustrations and fear.

Chelsea is a true north Queenslander – raised in Ingham and educated at James Cook University in Townsville.

When not working to enhance clients’ lives through improved communication, she’s a volunteer Pyjama Angel, reading to a child in foster care every week.
