I graduated university with a degree in Psychology and Speech Pathology, and am a qualified Speech and Language Therapist (HCPC registered and RCSLT member).
During my time at University, a placement in a Special Needs school sparked my interest in supporting those with additional needs, and upon graduating I found a job in a Special Needs school near Manchester. During my time here I developed further my interest in the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication to enable individuals without proficient verbal language access to communication. I loved being able to work with pupils using AAC as they developed confidence and communicated novel messages throughout the school environment.
I have worked at the Ace Centre since 2019 and enjoy developing my knowledge of the range of different systems and access methods available in order to meet the needs of our clients. I am passionate about promoting equal access to communication and supporting individuals to develop their skills to communicate in a range of settings.
