Amber Burnham

Senior Speech Pathologist, Clinical Mentor Coordinator

Amber completed her Speech Pathology degree at La Trobe University in 2006. She has worked for a number of major health services across Melbourne, primarily in Community Rehabilitation. She has always enjoyed working with clients and their carers/families in their own environment as she feels this allows them to focus on areas that are important to them.

She has more than 10 years experience working with clients with acquired brain injury with a special interest in working with people with aphasia and has spent time on the committee for the Australian Aphasia Association (Victorian Branch). She also has specialised experience in working with clients with Movement Disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s Disease) and accent modification.

Outside of work, Amber loves hanging out with her young family and enjoying the local beaches and parks.

Amber will celebrate 5 years with IRS in 2022.
