Hollie-Ann is a certified practicing Speech Pathologist and the director of Vagus Speech Pathology. She has 14 years’ experience in providing high level Speech Pathology care to adults presenting with swallowing and communication disorders in both the public and private sectors as well as clinical education for Speech Pathology students through the University of Newcastle.

Hollie’s experience over her Speech Pathology career so far has extended clinically across the areas of head & neck surgery, neurology/neurosurgery, trauma, aged care, palliative care, respiratory and general medicine caseloads. However, her clinical expertise is in the area of complex swallowing disorders (including assessment with Modified Barium Swallow), voice/laryngeal dysfunction (including chronic cough, upper airway disorders) and Laryngectomy (voice prosthesis management/replacement) and Tracheostomy care.

It is a combination of Hollie’s clinical work over the past 14 years and her passion for improving the quality of life for those with swallowing difficulties that has also led her to further pursue higher studies with her enrolment in a Doctor of Philosophy (Speech Pathology) through the University of Newcastle.
