Danielle - Spot Team

Speech Pathologist & Team Leader

Danielle was lucky enough to grow up on her family’s cattle property in Central Queensland. She loves going out there in her spare time and helping out in any way possible, whether it’s cattle work, jumping on the tractor or fixing fencing. Having spent most of her life in a rural area, she understands that these places don’t always have the things you want (Kmart!) and the things you need (a great speechie available for regular therapy) at your doorstep… or maybe not even for the next 300km. This upbringing is what created her passion for providing services to people with limited options, and it is made possible by Spot.

After completing her Bachelor of Speech Pathology (Honours) at CQUniversity, Danielle completed research and published an article looking at the effectiveness of providing speech therapy services online and this is where her love for telehealth blossomed. She started her career in the disability sector, acute and rehabilitative hospital settings and community health facilities, before transitioning to work in private practice at Spot, to pursue her passion for telehealth.

Danielle is experienced in providing clinical services in areas of dysphagia, language, speech, literacy and orofacial myology. She loves seeing the progress a client can make. From a child being able to tell their parents what they want or learning the skills to read and write, to an adult saying “hello” and “I love you” to their family for the first time after a stroke. What better way to spend your day than helping people change their lives for the better (while sitting in your home office)!
