As a recipient of the Ministry of Health (MOH) Health Science Overseas Scholarship, Shu Xian graduated from The University of Sydney, Australia and started her Speech Therapy journey with KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital.

Over the years, she has accumulated various clinical experience within the paediatric population, from feeding difficulties to language issues, in both outpatient clinic and inpatient settings. She has partnered and empowered many parents and caregivers in managing their child’s difficulties, building a positive relationship with children, and ensuring that they learn in a pleasant and fun environment whenever possible.  

Shu Xian believes that every individual has their own strength and part of her role as a therapist is to tap on that unique capability and maximise their fullest potential. As a parent of twin girls, she is able to empathise with fellow caregivers and customise therapy accordingly.

Shu Xian is effectively bilingual in English and Mandarin, allowing her to build rapport with patients and families of various backgrounds.
