I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in 2000 and have spent my career working with adults. Initially I worked across a range of adult client groups including ALD, voice and acute but for the last 10 years I have focussed on working with adults with neurological conditions. In 2013, I joined the Bucks Community Neurological Rehabilitation Service working as part of an interdisciplinary team. The work has been stimulating and challenging and I have loved working as a team with colleagues from different disciplines. 

I now work part-time as a Teaching Fellow and my role on the MSc Speech and Language Sciences involves coordinating the module SLAN0009: Management of Communication Difficulties 3: Language and Cognition (acquired). This module addresses aphasia, cognitive communication disorder and dementia and covers theory, assessment and intervention approaches. I also have a role in teaching and assessment in SLAN0008: Professional Studies.
Research Summary
My research interests stem from my love of working with people with aphasia. In 2013, I completed my PhD ‘Facilitating word retrieval in people with aphasia: an exploration of the relationship between language and neuropsychological processing’ having been expertly supervised by Professor Wendy Best and Dr Caroline Newton. 

I continue to be interested in the clinical application of this relationship, most notably how do we assess and support neuropsychological processing in people with aphasia. I am also interested in how we best facilitate people with aphasia in order to optimise their language.

Previously I have been involved in research investigating cueing therapy and generalisation for people with aphasia.
