Hi, I'm Sarah!
Sarah Lobegeiger de Rodriguez in full. Yes, there's 10 syllables in my name! But for comfort's sake, you can just call me Sarah, so don't freak about how to pronounce my name- I can always show you later!I started Voice Science in 2013 because I saw that there was a need for strategic, research based communication consulting.
As a speech pathologist and opera singer I knew there is both a science and art to getting the communication impact you need.
Since that time our team of speech pathologists have been providing communication consulting to individuals and companies.
Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist
Sarah is a fully qualified Speech Pathologist and Opera Singer (MA Speech Pathology – La Trobe University) who has a special interest in accent reduction/modification and vocal therapy / rehabilitation. She is a Certified Practicing Speech Pathology registered with Speech Pathology Australia.
Professional Operatic Soprano
As an experienced operatic soprano (Master of Opera Performance, Bachelor of Music Performance, Bachelor of English) Sarah is also equipped to address the demands of a performing career on vocal output and can successfully rehabilitate and maximise vocal technique. With her operatic training, Sarah is also available for consultation as a diction, language consultant and vocal health specialist for singers, actors and performers.

Someone who can strike the balance between light-hearted sessions jam-packed with lots of hard work?
Evelyn developed a passionate interest in pronunciation clarification training and stuttering therapy during her Master of Speech Pathology degree at the University of Melbourne. 5 years later, with lots of experience behind her, she's become a strong advocate for multi-lingualism.
Evelyn was so excited to join our team, she decided to move back to Melbourne from Sydney!
So what can we tell you about Evelyn?
You can expect a friendly and easy-going speech pathologist who will tailor sessions to meet your specific needs and get excited about making specific resources just for you!
Sessions with Evelyn involve you working very hard while she measures your progress. She'll always have a score for how well you are going but don't panic- she tracks your progress with a supportive smile that will make you wish you had practised more.
But what is it about speech pathology that gets Evelyn interested? Well, she's loved pronunciation clarification work from the get-go. So that's one solid part of her work at Voice Science soon. But Evelyn also has a very strong interest in stuttering therapy and helping her clients develop more confidence in their social communication skills.

Evelyn is a bilingual speech pathologist who is also proficient in Mandarin.
Emily started at Voice Science in early 2019 and gosh, we don't know what we would do without her!
She brings a warm and empathetic nature to all sessions but be prepared to do your homework- she'll check.
Emily has a strong passion for speech pathology. She's the kind of clinician we have to remind to, go home already and rest! Emily reads journal articles on her weekends, always has a fun fact to share and makes the most beautiful learning materials. But let's down to business!
What does Emily find fascinating about our scope? With her acting and music theatre background, she's a super keen accent modification clinician. She also has a big heart for stuttering therapy and voice therapy and social communication therapy.
Emily has a Bachelor of Arts (Musical Theatre) from the University of Ballarat (now Federation University) as well as a Bachelor of Applied Science/Master of Speech Pathology from La Trobe University. She is a Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist.

Laura has international experience as a Speech Pathologist and Teacher of English from her time living in London and southern Spain. And if there’s one thing she loves, it’s learning languages! Laura has studied Italian to mastery level and speaks advanced Spanish. Her overseas adventures have given her so much insight into the challenges and beauty of learning and living in foreign languages, and she applies all of this empathy to her interactions with clients.
She is always so honoured to help clients achieve their goals and communicative potential. She strives to make every session collaborative and flexible, tapping into what is most important for each of her clients.
Laura has an enormous soft spot for music and singing, and is currently pursuing studies in flamenco guitar, ¡Olé! Keep an eye out for her performing soppy love songs at weddings, jamming with Brazilian drumming groups and (she hopes one day) busking along Southbank!
Laura has a Bachelor of Arts (Italian and linguistics) and a Master of Speech Pathology from the University of Melbourne, and an Advanced Certificate in English Language Teaching. She is a Certified Practicing Speech Pathologist.
