Leah Parkinson
Speech and Language Therapist


Originally from the UK, but having spent most of her life growing up in sunny Mount Maunganui, Leah completed a BSocSci in Anthropology and Linguistics in 2015 then went on to further studies and graduated from the University of Canterbury in 2018 with a Master of Speech and Language Pathology. Since then, she moved to Taranaki and has been working locally at Taranaki District Health Board seeing both adult and paediatric clients. Leah works with adults and children who have communication needs as well as provides assessment and treatment for adults and children with swallowing difficulties. She has a wide range of experience across population groups and strives to provide the best outcomes for her clients. 

When Leah is not at work, she loves hiking, travelling, dancing, sewing and spending time with friends and family.
