Chloe completed her training in 2007 and soon after commenced work in acquired brain injury and neuroscience. She has specialised in neurological rehabilitation with extensive experience in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and acquired neurological conditions. During her lengthy employment at Epworth Rehabilitation, Chloe was Neurological Team Leader and senior speech pathologist, co-facilitating the establishment of the Olfactory Impairment Clinic and leading clinicians across the allied health teams in the provision of high-quality evidence based clinical care.

As part of her work in the Acquired Brain Injury Team, Chloe was awarded an Epworth HealthCare Scholarship and went on to research and lead the implementation of outcome measures in clinical practice across speech pathology services. Chloe has specialised in her care of individuals with olfactory impairment across both TBI and progressive neurological conditions, providing key support to the research in this emerging clinical field. After moving to regional Victoria with her husband and two children, Chloe now works in private practice. She is passionate about interdisciplinary care and family-cantered practice, believing that the whole self is integral to effective change and progress in rehabilitation. Chloe has a keen interest in language, motor speech and social communication impairments in complex acquired brain injuries.
