Bachelor of Speech Pathology, Australian Catholic University
Stella’s interests in the field of speech pathology stemmed from a lifelong love of the impact of communication on an individual in their everyday life. Pair that with the love of teaching, linguistics as well as science and Stella found her passion. This allowed her to establish and develop her interests in working with clients and their families to support the best communication method that is tailored to them. Stella has experience working in early intervention, and disability along the lifespan within the framework of the NDIS as a Speech Pathologist. Stella’s love of technology allowed her to develop further interest in the areas of Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) for individuals with complex communication needs as well as intervention methods for swallowing and feeding that are modified for every individual. In her spare time Stella enjoys finding the best walks within her community, gardening, and spending time with her two Miniature Dachshunds.
