Our History

Julie Carey first opened Western Sydney Speech Pathology in 1990. She ran the practice from her Doonside home. In 2007, the practice moved to Kildare Court, Blacktown. 

In 2011, Celine joined the WSSP team. As a local, she had a strong desire to connect with the community. She engaged in a range of community events and built relationships with health professionals in the area. She quickly displayed her leadership skills, and in 2017, when Julie retired, Celine took over the business. Between 2017-2021, the business grew into a team of speech pathologists and administrators. 

In 2021, Rosie started working at WSSP as a senior speech pathologist. Celine and Rosie have been friends for a long time and always hoped to work together one day. Together, they began to envision the future for WSSP, develop innovative services, provide exceptional supervision to their team, and grow the business. 

In 2023, Western Sydney Speech Pathology was renamed to Word Stars Speech Pathology.
