“Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.“
Ed is an accidental speech pathologist and PhD candidate, and has practiced across rural and remote communities for the last eight years. Ed is also a Services for Australian Rural and Remote Allied Health (SARRAH) board member, and sits on the Clinical Council at the Western NSW Primary Health Network.
In his spare time, you’ll probably find Ed playing cricket, talking cricket, or watching cricket (with his cat, Katich, who is named after his favourite cricketer of course). He has also been known to integrate cricket and cricket trivia into his work with clients who share his passion.
Ed is keen to learn from people with disability about how allied health can support them to live the life that they want, and would like to support them to advocate on their terms, especially in rural and remote areas.
