Emily Gore-Hickman,  M.SP, R.SLP

After venturing here from Calgary to obtain her Bachelor of Science at UBCO, Emily spent time in Queensland, Australia to complete her Master of Speech Pathology. Now that she’s back in the Okanagan, she’s joined the Meridian team as Vernon’s SLP. Outside of the office, Emily loves spending time in the summer on the lake boating and water skiing at her family cabin! She also puts her voice to good use as a classically trained opera singer! Emily is a firm believer that everyone has a right to communicate and has a voice to be heard. She’s passionate about helping her clients to communicate in the best way they can, and increasing their self-confidence to do so!
