Hi my full name is Alexandra but people call me Lexi for short.
I graduated from the University of Cape Town at the end of 2020 before returning to my home city where I completed my Community Service Year at Edenvale Hospital. During which I worked in a close multi-disiplinary team to assess and manage a wide variety of adult and paediatric patients with different communication and dysphagia difficulties.
I am excited to be joining the Words First Team as I feel that it provides clinicians the opportunity to use and share their knowledge while growing their passion to help others in need. I have a particular interest in working in early childhood development and keep the child, their family and the community at the heart of how I practice.
In my free time, you can catch me chasing the sun. I enjoy going on adventures whether it is to a new restaurant, activity or city.
My friends describe me as motivated,hard working and enthusiastic about both my work and life! I am excited to join the Worlds First family and everything to come.
