Lesley O’Donohue
Speech Pathologist

After almost two decades in primary school education, first as an aide and later as a teacher, I saw firsthand the vital role oral language plays in a child’s ability to access all aspects of learning and the curriculum. I also witnessed the difficulty parents in my regional area of Bass Coast had in accessing Speech Pathology services. So, becoming a speech pathologist was the obvious next step for me. I am very excited to be able to support local families and clients of all ages to achieve their speech, language and literacy goals, while based in Wonthaggi. When I’m not in the clinic, I love looking after my chooks and veggie garden, cooking and eating, crafting, and enjoying the outdoors with my family and Great Dane puppy.
