Holly founded MouthWorks Therapy Centre in 2010 and grew the practice with a large multi-disciplinary team to cover all of Tasmania – both in metropolitan and rural areas spanning from Dover to King Island.
Holly has a passion for providing excellent communication and swallowing therapy for every person, of any age, and has worked extensively with children and adults with swallowing problems or eating difficulties – regardless of their medical condition or diagnosis. With an emphasis on strength in diversity and holistic care, Holly enjoys working with person centred care at the centre of practice and within a network of supportive health professionals around each client.

MouthWorks joined the Early Start Australia network in 2021 and continues to provide multi-disciplinary rural, regional and metro services for all Tasmanians, from infants and early childhood care through to caring for older persons and for adults living with disability in our community.
