WHY DID YOU BECOME A THERAPY ASSISTANT?

I am currently in my 3rd year as a speech pathology student so when the opportunity for a therapy assistant became available at Bloom, I was incredibly keen to put my hand up for the role.

WHAT ARE YOUR PARTICULAR AREAS OF INTEREST?

Where do I start! My particular areas of interest are autism, language, fluency, aphasia, and inconsistent speech disorders just to name a few.

WHY BLOOM?

Bloom has provided me with so many opportunities to learn and gain new skills, not only in the area of speech pathology, but also in the areas of occupational therapy, group therapy, and social skills for children. I love that Bloom is client focused and we get to work with so many amazing clients and their families.

HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME? ANY HOBBIES?

I love to read! Books, Books, Books! I also love swimming and will try to get to the pool a couple times each week – it’s my form of meditation.

THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS…

Books, salted caramel ice-cream, and bright nail polish!
