Born and raised in Mackay, Central Queensland, Telissia is no stranger to
adventure, the beach, and nature. Now residing in the Glass House
Mountains on the Sunshine Coast, she is passing on this legacy to
her own children, along with her husband.
Telissia completed a Bachelor of Speech Pathology in 2020 at the
Australian Catholic University in Brisbane and immediately started
working within the paediatric population at a multidisciplinary practice
on the Sunshine Coast.
During her studies and professional career, Telissia has gained a strong
passion for all aspects of Speech Pathology and loves working with
clientele of all ages and complexities, especially in the areas of social
skills, speech, language, literacy, voice, swallowing, fluency/stuttering,
AAC, feeding, and OM.
One of Telissia’s greatest strengths is her ability to connect with people,
which has helped her provide evidence-based care to those who have
previously struggled to connect with clinicians, particularly clients who
present with Global Delay, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and ADHD.
In her spare time Telissia enjoys spending time with family, singing
professionally, sewing, gardening, board games, camping, fishing, hiking
