I have been working for 20 years in public education as an SLP. I completed a reading endorsement recently which has added to my skill set as an SLP. My passion is collaborating with others professionals. I love pushing into general and special education classrooms to provide support to my students. I specialize in working with students on all levels of the autism spectrum and designing programs to promote successful building of friendships with peers.
