Speech Language Pathologist, Natalie has worked in Halifax for over 15 years, throughout which she has referred many clients to Halifax Learning for their SpellRead programme. She runs a private practice that allows her to work with a wide range of families to maximize communication and is very excited to partner with Halifax Learning. Natalie is also a published novelist and artist. She is an experienced wrangler of teenagers, having four of her own. She spends her free time - what’s left of it - drawing, reading, playing mindless iPhone games and trying to convince the dog to pee outside instead of in.
