MEET MELANIE VON BERTOUCH FROM COASTAL KIDS SPEECH PATHOLOGY

Tell us about yourself and your family.

I grew up in a small coastal town on the South Coast of NSW and Paul, my husband and I moved to Townsville with the Army in 2009.

Tell us about your business.

I started my private practice in a very small, part-time capacity when my first child was about six months old. It was important to have the flexibility of working hours that suited our family. Our services have grown, and we now have four full-time speech pathologists within our two clinics.

What makes your business special?

We always try to put families first in everything that we do; I have a young family, so we understand the juggling and stresses that families face. We work with families to give children the best outcomes.

Why do you like living in FNQ?

We love it; Paul discharged from the Army so that we could stay and raise our children here. I’m amazed by the variety of local community events; they get us outdoors with the kids enjoying our amazing climate.

If you would like to discuss your child’s needs with Coastal Kids Speech Pathology give them a call on 0427 922 378 or visit www.coastalkidsspeech.com.au
