Rachael grew up in the Western Suburbs of Sydney and completed her Master’s degree in Speech Pathology at Macquarie University. She then lived in Melbourne before settling in Newcastle with her husband, Luke.
Growing up, Rachael always had two passions: a love of words, and a love of helping others. Her initial goal was to become the world’s best spelling teacher, but after learning that this was not a real career, she found Speech Pathology to be a much better alternative.
In a previous job, Rachael worked as a Speech Pathologist across approximately 30 aged care centres, assisting people to be able to safely swallow the foods and drinks they love. After working in this field for a while, Rachael felt she wanted a Speech Pathology position with a bigger focus on therapy for communication goals. However, Rachael retains a knowledge and love of helping people to enjoy their mealtimes safely.
Within Educational Case Management, Rachael now enjoys working with adults and children, helping them to swallow and communicate.
Rachael’s particular areas of interest include early language development, literacy, and articulation.
Rachael loves walking her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Keep your eyes peeled and you may see her walking with a very happy dog!
