Service Lead for Milton Keynes and Specialist Generalist Speech and Language Therapist, Developing Specialist in Hearing Impairment

Becoming a children’s speech and language therapist was one of the best decisions I ever made. I have always been interested in both arts and sciences and speech and language therapy is the perfect combination; problem solving with out of box thinking. Working with children is inspiring and they amaze me everyday with their ability to keep on learning. Plus, there aren't many jobs you can do wearing a miniature saucepan as a crown!

Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down.
