Welcome to Buzz! My name is Larissa Hollier (B.App.Sc. (Sp.Path)). I own and operate Buzz Speech Pathology.
After having trained and worked in Sydney and on the Central Coast, I relocated to Canberra to launch Buzz Speech Pathology in September 2010. Buzz Speech Pathology was started to fill a need in the community for home based and accessible services – particularly for families with young children. Children benefit from receiving assessment and therapy in a comfortable, familiar environment - and having therapy at home or at school saves time and energy for busy families. Our team are friendly and experienced with children from all walks of life. We pride ourselves on personalised, caring and dedicated service at all times. We like to try and make Speech Therapy fun and interactive for your children. Check out our pages of fun activities to do at home - for kids of all ages! And follow us on our Facebook page where we post student of the week and other Buzz info and notices. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about Buzz or would like to book an assessment. Read on to meet our fabulous team!
Hi, my name is Claire. I graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Speech Pathology in 2014. Since graduating I have worked for a private practice in Queensland providing speech pathology assessments and therapy to children aged 0 to 5 and school aged. I chose to become a Speech Pathologist as I have always been passionate about helping others and being a speech pathologist would allow me help both children and adults communicate more effectively with their friends and family. The things I love most about being a Speech Pathologist is that I get to see clients with such diverse needs in a variety of different settings, and how rewarding it is when a client achieves their goals. I really enjoy working with children of all ages and am very passionate about helping them to improve their speech and language skills as these skills will help them throughout their entire life.
Hi my name is Stephanie (B.A., MSpPath) and I recently completed my studies to become a speech pathologist at Flinders University in Adelaide in 2016. I have always been passionate about language having studied French and Indonesian for 10 years. This love of language eventually lead me to study linguistics which opened up the world of speech pathology to me. Language and communication are incredibly important to me because I understand the frustration that comes with not being able to communicate your message. I hope to be able to help make a difference to the lives of the people I work with.
Hi, my name is Shannon. I’m a qualified Speech Pathologist who joined the Buzz Speech Pathology team in April, 2018. Originally from Griffith, NSW, I completed my Masters of Speech Pathology at Sydney University in 2014 and gained experience working as a school-based Speech Pathologist at schools in Western Sydney. I have worked with students from Kindergarten through to Year 12, including students in special education and behaviour units. Working closely with teachers, school psychologists and school support staff has increased my awareness of the importance of setting functional speech pathology goals that will help students achieve their academic potential. I’m also passionate about helping students to improve their communication skills to help them participate appropriately in social interactions with peers and adults, assisting them to reach optimal social outcomes.
Our Speech Pathologists have appropriate qualifications, working with vulnerable people registration and are members of the Speech Pathology Australia Association.
