I have been working as a full time Speech and Language Pathologist in a bilingual elementary school setting for ten years. Time has flown by in the blink of an eye- I really am lucky to love what I do so very much. I also work as a medical Speech and Language Pathologist in multiple settings- primarily hospitals and nursing homes. I find that the diverstity of my settings makes me creative and focus on the quickest way to remediate any need.
My goal is to change the world one child and one family at a time. I think that language exposure and interaction are keys to early childhood success and hope to help parents learn how to support their children in the most effective ways possible. My students (and my own children) need strong language skills, executive function skills, perspective and kindness in order to be successful not only in school but in life- and I think it is my job to help them learn and apply all of those skills.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Marquette University, received the Raynor Fellowship and was a member of Phi Theta Kappa. I have served as Vice President-Membership for Wisconsin Speech and Hearing Association and routinely speak at the local Universities about the realities of school based Speech Language Pathology service provision.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Marquette University in May 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology and Audiology. I attended Marquette University for graduate school as well and graduated with my Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology in May 2003.
I am a working mom of two amazing boys. My husband stays home with our children and I do what I can to support us all so that the boys can spend their earliest years at home with dad (and Bailey the dog).
