Hi, my name is Inika and I am a Speech Pathologist I have a true passion for working with individuals of all ages who require evidence based support for their communication. I strongly believe that our quality of life directly links to how we use our communication skills to understand and express information… hence why I love this field!


I have experience working with children and adults with developmental and acquired disabilities, who have complex communication and swallowing difficulties. My interest areas include early language, AAC and paediatric feeding. 


I am so excited to join the Shepherd team!
