Congratulations Elise Baker - Fellow of Speech Pathology Australia

Tonight, my colleague Dr Elise Baker, was named a Fellow of Speech Pathology Australia. This is one of the highest honours of the association. Here is a  portion of her nomination documentation:
As a senior lecturer at The University of Sydney, she has inspired hundreds of undergraduate and masters-level students to use evidence-based practice when working with children. Dr Baker has also contributed to the professional development of qualified speech pathologists, most notably by running a sold-out National Tour for the Association in 2013. She has published 35 peer-reviewed journal articles, and is recognised as one of the word leaders in research in childhood speech sound disorders.
Congratulations Elise!

Speech Pathology Australia also acknowledged:
