At Rocky Bay, we’re always looking to create pathways and opportunities for our people so they can develop and achieve their career potential.

Our investment in people and technology is next level. Our staff see the big picture yet focus on detail when it comes to our customers, and our passion to enrich the lives of the individuals we support unites us.

We like to think of our organisation as a super health hub for customers, home to everything from physio, to speech therapy, community access and mental wellness, and we are excited to currently have a wealth of opportunities for allied health professionals on offer.

Below you can read the experiences of one of our speech pathologists and behaviour support practitioners, who have recently been promoted to senior roles, to find out why they chose Rocky Bay as the organisation to grow and develop their careers.

Behaviour Support

Rocky Bay has an interdisciplinary team approach to positive behaviour support for individuals who have behaviours of concerns. Our team is dedicated, supportive and work with customers, their families and other therapists to ensure the health and wellbeing of our customers.

Advanced Clinician Behaviour Support Practitioner, Lindsay Hogg, has been part of the clinical team for nearly three years starting as a Psychologist, and was recently promoted into her current role.

Her career began after completing a Masters of Clinical Psychology at Murdoch University, whilst working as an Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapist at a private practice. Lindsay then joined Rocky Bay after seeing how much her sister, former Rocky Bay Speech Pathologist Steph Hogg, loved her role.

“She really motivated me to apply after university and I am glad I did,” Lindsay said.

“I was recently offered the role of Advanced Clinician on the Behaviour Support Team as I had finally completed my qualification as a clinical psychologist.”

Lindsay completed a total of seven years of study and a two year registrar program to obtain her qualification, which she said had been a long but enjoyable journey.

“There have been many changes at Rocky Bay since I have been here and I have enjoyed being a part of the ongoing growth and development of the behaviour support team.”

Speech Pathology

Communication is such an important part of an independent life, and our team of dedicated speechies who partner with our customers of all ages and abilities to ensure they benefit from specialised, 1:1 support in speech and literacy skills.

Advanced Clinician Speech Pathology, Kerry Judge, has been part of Rocky bay’s Clinical team for the past four years. Kerry was recently promoted to her Advanced Clinician role, and is enjoying her experience of sharing her clinical knowledge.

“I feel it is important for me to share my vast range of clinical experience to help guide our newly graduated speech pathologists, so they can develop as confident and competent therapists,” Kerry said.

A true passion for speech pathology and guiding new graduates in their discipline is one of the main reasons Kerry decided to apply for an Advanced Clinician role at Rocky Bay.

“I love seeing therapists grow and embrace professional challenges, and I feel it is important for them to know they are supported in their journey.”

Kerry said that Rocky Bay’s reputation as the leading health and community provider in Western Australia is why our organisation is the employer of choice in her field.

“I see Rocky Bay as a leader in the disability sector and I have always aligned myself with organisations who rise above and continue to strive to improve and lead.”
