Meet Annie Towers

Speech Pathologist

Annie joined our team with a background in disability support!

She grew up on properties in North Western NSW, starting her schooling through distance education and then attending boarding school, before moving to the beach to study a Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Hons) at the University of Newcastle.

Annie’s passion for working with those living in rural and remote areas comes from her own experiences, and her plan has always been to support people living outside of major cities to access fantastic services that are on par (or better!) than those living in the big smoke.

Annie is now based in the Hunter Valley, and when she is not working, she can be found chasing after her dog and attempting to bake the perfect chocolate chip biscuit. If you have a family recipe that you’re willing to share, she’s all ears!

Annie understands that every person is different, and she is passionate about tailoring a client-centred therapy approach that will have the biggest functional impact for each individual.

Annie is trained in the Spalding Method and Read 3, two of Spot’s primary evidence-based literacy intervention programs. Annie has experience working with people of all ages and loves the diversity of working within a private practice – from early language, to dysphagia rehabilitation, and everything in between!
