Camilla  Strain
Position: Team Leader

 

Camilla grew up in Port Macquarie. After graduating from university, she was thrilled to join Cerebral Palsy Alliance in 2015 as the local speech pathologist. Since then she has been promoted to Team Leader, but hasn’t lost her connection to clients.

In fact, the most rewarding part of her work is to support a client to find their voice through alternative communication. She says the moment a person is able to share their own thoughts for the first time is overwhelming.

Camilla loves her job because CPA supports its staff to keep learning, and keep pace with new therapies and technologies that can make a real difference to the lives of clients and their families. For example, Camilla is encouraged to keep up with the latest offerings in assistive technology that enables a client to communicate, so that she can teach them the skills to use it.
