    Biography

    What I Do
    My philosophy of care involves approaching each patient from an individual standpoint and building the rapport to create an engaging and functional treatment plan. My special clinical interests include pediatrics, articulation/phonological disorders and apraxia of speech, pediatric feeding and swallowing, cleft and craniofacial disorders.

    Why I Love My Work
    My favorite part about my work is the little day-to-day victories in therapy. With a background in linguistics, I wanted to learn more about how the structure and functions of language/speech develop and change throughout the lifespan.

    Getting to Know Me
    Outside of work, I enjoy baking and decorating cakes, spending time with my dog, and antiquing.
