Meet Our Speech Pathologists: Eve

My name is Eve and I am a Speech Pathologist who joined the Speaking of Learning team in May 2019. I am very glad to be part of a supportive, compassionate and experienced team of therapists.

I was drawn to study speech pathology because I believe that communication is a basic human right, and every person deserves to have a voice to express their wants and needs.

I feel very privileged to be a small part of my client’s communication journey. My goal is to give my clients the tools they need to participate meaningfully in their families and communities, either through verbal speech or alternative and augmentative communication (AAC).

I am passionate about building the capacity of parents and educators in supporting children with communication difficulties. My special interests include working with children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, bilingualism, and stuttering.

During my spare time, I enjoy playing the piano, watching documentaries and also making bread (a new skill I have developed during this period of isolation). I look forward to seeing you all soon.
