I'm Carly

My Story

I am the owner and principal Speech Pathologist here at Hastings Macleay Speech Pathology. I graduated from The University of Newcastle in 2011 and have worked extensively with adults and aged care patients ever since.

My work experience has been extremely diverse having lived in Sydney and regional parts of QLD & NSW. My hubby, Cavoodle & I decided a relocation to Port Macquarie was just what we needed to continue enjoying our love of the outdoors, swimming and gardening.  

My true passion is working with neurological communication and swallowing disorders. I am qualified to do Videofluoroscopy Swallow Studies (VFSS) and LSVT LOUD ® (Lee Silverman Voice Treatment). With expertise in swallowing and communication management, I provide support and treatment options, particularly in more complex cases such as degenerative neurological conditions (MND).

My special skillset and qualifications are as follows: 

- MSPA (Member of Speech Pathology Australia) & CPSP (Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist)

- VFSS Competent & MBSImP trained ®

- LSVT LOUD ® certified

- MND SIG (Motor Neuron Disease Special Interest Group) member

- ACI Education & Professional Development Working party member

- ACI Rehabilitation Network member

- AAC SIG (Augmentative & Alternative Communication) member
