Alannah Turner, M.Sc., RSLP – Consultant Speech-Language Pathologist

Alannah believes that there is a strong connection between a person’s voice, and their sense of self. Alannah’s passion for speaking and communicating first appeared in the form of acting and writing for theatre. When Alannah developed vocal fold nodules, she saw a speech pathologist to help her regain her voice. The first visit sparked something and she knew she had a new path to follow.

Alannah works with both adults and children for voice therapy, transgender voice training, and is certified in Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT).
