How long have you been with DWSP?
3 years now, with a maternity leave break in the middle to have my daughter.
In a couple of sentences, talk us through your role at DWSP
I work with children and adults with communication difficulties. I love working with children under 5 years of age and their families to develop their speech and language skills. Working with adults who have speech, language and voice difficulties is certainly rewarding too.
I also hold SOS certification, which is a sequential feeding program for children with eating and feeding difficulites. I work alongside our OTs to continually develop our offerings and services for clients with sensory and feeding difficulties, as a way to integrate the SOS program for clients.
What is your favourite part of your role?
Hearing from parents that there’s been improvements in their child’s speech/language since the last session, or when families have reported positive changes in their child’s eating patterns. Yay!
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Hong Kong, but I grew up in Melbourne.
Before DWSP, what was the most interesting or unusual job you’ve ever had?
I worked in a Optometrist teaching children how to wear and care for contact lenses.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Watching renovation shows; fixing up and decorating my house
If you could be a superhero, what would your superpower be?
Be able to speak and understand any language, wouldn’t that be useful!
