Designation: Speech Therapist

I graduated from UCT in2007 and completed my community service year in Ermelo in Mpumalanga in 2008. I then went on to spend 6 months working at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto. I then moved back to Cape Town to work in the private sector and have been building my own private practice since 2013. I work with a wide range of speech and language disorders and have a passion for my profession. Language development is an amazing phenomenon that so many take for granted. For a select few speech and language does not come naturally and they need to be helped and nurtured through their developmental years and often beyond. I have an interest in Neuro rehab and have completed the bridging level of the PROMPT programme. I enjoy continuously learning and growing and am grateful for the wide variety of wonderful people that this profession brings into my life.


I graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2014 with a BSc in Speech-Language Pathology. I then completed my community service year at Port Elizabeth Hospital Complex in 2015, where I rotated between three hospitals. I gained invaluable experience in many areas of speech therapy within adult and paediatric populations in acute care settings. I enjoy working with a wide range of adult and paediatric speech, language, feeding and swallowing disorders. I am especially interested in feeding and swallowing (with adults and paediatrics), autism spectrum disorder and adult neurological disorders. I am passionate about what we do as speech therapists and I hope to one day complete my Masters in order to contribute to South African research and develop as a therapist.


I graduated from the University of Stellenbosch in 2014 with a degree in B. Speech-Language and Hearing Therapy. I had the privilege of completing my community service year at Madwaleni, a rural District Hospital in the Transkei. Madwaleni taught me the value of transdisciplinary treatment and community living, the importance of education and prevention as well as making use of limited resources. I then worked at Rita Henn & Partners, a physical rehabilitation hospital in Auckland Park, Johannesburg. There I worked with a wonderful team in the paediatric unit, treating in-and out patients. I gained much more experience within the neurological and dysphagia fields and completed the VitalStim Plus course. In 2017 I took the opportunity to go overseas for a year. I au paired for a family with three boys and did some traveling in Europe. I have a particular interest in dysphagia, neurological rehabilitation and primary health care and I thoroughly enjoy working with a patient and his/her family during their rehabilitation journey.
