Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the Speech and Language Therapy team in 2007, having previously worked full-time as a clinical speech and language therapist in the NHS. I now work three and half days a week at the University of Strathclyde with an honorary clinical contract with NHS Lanarkshire and my own independent practice.  Combining these complementary aspects of speech and language therapy allows me to bring a 'real-life' element to teaching through my clinical work, and my academic role supports my curiosity around how and why therapy is effective, or not, in the clinic. I have experience working with a range of adult acquired communication and swallowing disorders, and currently specialise clinically in voice disorders and adults stammering.

I am passionate about increasing awareness and understanding of neurodiversity, both within a learning environment and by the general public. My desire is that everyone with a communication difference knows they have a voice and feels heard by others. 

Research Interests

My clinical research focus is the health and function of the teaching voice, with pedagogical interest in the teaching and learning of fluency disorders (stammering).

Teaching Interests

I am responsible for teaching the adult stammering component in the BSc (Hons) Speech and Language Pathology curriculum, and lead the Clinical and Professional Capabilities 5 module, with contributions to teaching across Clinical and Professional Capabilities 1-4. I also support teaching in adult voice disorders and provide teaching in the Advanced Study Option and Research Investigation 2 modules. I am Placement Lead and Admissions Tutor.
