Joanne is committed to provision of client centred support to ensure assessment and therapy is tailored to an individual’s needs and can assist with improving their ability to participate in everyday life, including assistance with return to work, study or leisure pursuits.

Joanne’s experience also extends to the presentation of lectures and workshops overseas, involvement in research projects, development of competency and quality improvement programs and she has been instrumental in the development of departmental hospital policies.

We feel extremely fortunate to have attracted Joanne to our organisation and know that her extensive clinical skills working with adult acquired communication, cognitive, swallowing and voice disorders will help us make a real difference to our participants lives.
