Kass strongly believes in the right to communicate and values the opportunity to work with clients and their families to engage and contribute to their community.
As a Burdekin and Townsville local, Kass completed her Bachelor of Speech Pathology at James Cook University receiving an academic medal. During this time, she worked with school age children and provided support to children with additional needs. Her clinical experiences have been diverse, with the most diverse hailing from a stint in Timor-Leste, working with children with multiple impairments and difficulties.
Kass has a strong passion for Speech Pathology, and she enjoys working within all areas of this field. Specific interests such as paediatric literacy and language development, behavioural supports, voice impairments, augmentative and alternative communication and acquired communication impairments are at the top of the list.
Kass’s passion for social justice lead her to complete a research project on Speech Pathology involvement with youth justice, and she is committed to providing high quality early intervention services to at risk youth.
Kass’s high professionalism standards coupled with her playful (yet firm) personality allows for a creative and dynamic approach to speech pathology therapy. She enjoys enjoys travelling, watching AFL, fishing, camping, dancing and singing. Kass has once been described by children she has worked with previously as being a “rainbow” and she loves to live up to this in every session.
