Heather has a wealth of experience working with pre-school and elementary school children and her experience spans across the globe.

In her free time, Heather enjoys dancing, traveling, being active and playing with her puppy Keano.

I have an 11 year old son, Sam, with autism spectrum disorder and language delay. Heather worked as Sam’s speech therapist/pathologist.

I was always impressed with Heather’s professionalism. She set out clear speech goals each year and worked with Sam’s teachers to ensure the best outcomes for him. Heather taught Sam through play and activities, with the focus not just on speech but on all aspects of communication, such as social play, listening skills and conversation skills. She was always pleasant and punctual and even when Sam was having a less co-operative day, her enthusiasm never wavered!

I can heartily recommend Heather to other parents seeking a speech pathologist.
