I became an SLP because…

As a child, I struggled in school and received speech therapy. During college, I volunteered at an elementary school’s literacy center and, not only did I find that I could relate to students’ frustrations, but I also discovered a passion for empowering students to find their voice and understand their own styles of learning.

I get excited about…

Seeing my students every week! It’s what gets me out of bed in the morning. I also love collaborating with school staff and families to help newly developed speech and language skills carry over into other settings.

In my free time I enjoy…

Cooking, high-intensity interval training, and taking my dog to the park.
