I am a pediatric home health therapist, a wife, and a mother with a thirst for knowledge about the growing speech therapy field. I look for creative and engaging ways to reinforce a variety of skills in a single therapy sessions. Not only do I love to learn, but I also love to teach and mentor other therapists about ways to make therapy fun for them and their clients.
