What motivated you to become an SLP?

I was motivated to become an SLP because of the variety of services we provide and populations we can work with, all through the lens of getting to work one-on-one in a helping profession. 

What made you want to work at CHAT?

I love how CHAT acknowledges the role that communication plays in equity and inclusion work. I also love how everyone at CHAT share similar values and thrive to be the best therapists they can be together. 

What makes you excited about your work?

Every day I get to work with amazing kids and play a role in their communication. I absolutely love celebrating both big and little accomplishments with my clients, encouraging them to be as proud of themselves as I am of them. 

What do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy spending time with family and friends and staying active through rock climbing, hiking, and exercising by the lake.
