Carly Tilley

Senior Adult Speech Pathologist


Hi. My name's Carly. 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 Both 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, Carly provides support and treatment options, particularly in more complex cases such as degenerative neurological conditions.

Kaitlyn Keegan

Adult Speech Pathologist

Hi I'm Kaitlyn and I graduated from the University of Newcastle.

After realising that a career as a Legal Secretary wasn't for me, I decided to study Speech Pathology, determined to make a difference to people's communication and swallowing. I moved from the Central Coast NSW to Port Macquarie in 2019 with my two children and husband. I enjoy outdoor adventures with my family and home renovations. 

My clinical interests include working with post stroke patients, swallowing and Parkinson's disease. I am trained in SPEAK OUT! ® & LOUD CROWD! ® which is a highly evidence based voice treatment method for people with Parkinson's disease. 

Professional Development & Qualifications

- SPEAK OUT! ® & LOUD CROWD! ® certified
