Hello everyone! This is my third year as a speech-language pathologist! My first year I worked at a public early childhood center in a Chicago suburb. The past two years I have been blessed to work in an elementary school in the district I grew up in (IPSD 204)! I work in two self-contained classrooms with medically fragile children with severe to profound needs (i.e. trachs, feeding tubes, seizures, ventilators, rare genetic disorders, traumatic brain injury, etc.). The grade levels I work with are kindergarten through second grade.
Working in two self-contained "functional" classrooms, I place a strong emphasis on core vocabulary and foundational life skills. Each week I conduct a language group in both classrooms. Within my store are products I use for these weekly language groups.

I have known since 5th grade this was the career path I wanted to take, and I could not be happier! Other loves of mine include: baking, photography, decorating my pink office for holidays, and throwing parties.
