Kia ora, my name is Gwen. I have been a Speech-Language Therapist (SLT) for over 10 years.

I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor in Speech Language therapy from the University of Canterbury and then completed my Master of Science through the University of Auckland in 2017. My research focused on using specific measures when reviewing our swallow studies (VFSS) to help SLTs accurately analyse them. I have presented this research both within New Zealand and internationally.

I have worked across a number of settings including community, outpatients and inpatients (both rehabilitation and acute). I have a special interest in swallowing difficulties across many areas of health including surgical, medical and head and neck cancer. I work closely alongside otolaryngologists, gastroenterologists and dietitians.

I have completed further training in nasoendoscopy to assess swallow function (FEES), and am qualified to train other SLTs in this area.

I am a registered member of the New Zealand Speech Therapy Association (NZSTA) and am actively involved with the organisation. I also have a personal interest in mentoring, supervision and leadership.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via email, phone or messenger.
