I've been a speech language pathologist (aka - speech therapist) for 18 years. I started providing services in a local private practice but now work in an elementary school. I have been blessed with a variety of experiences which have all shaped the way I look at and approach communication challenges or disorders.
I see students individually and in a small group. I also consult with teachers to support student performance in the classroom. I try to make each session fun and engaging - through games, funny books, etc. I particularly gravitate toward activities that are practical in nature and easily carried over to the classroom by a student.
I have pursued and obtained grants during my career. Other honors and awards are related to my high school, undergraduate, and graduate work.

I've been happily married since 1997 to my wonderful husband, Rick. I have three sons who keep our house busy. I am blessed beyond my wildest dreams. I am grateful for each day where I can do what I love during the day and come home to a wonderful family.
