About me

I became a speech-language pathologist because good communication skills are so important for children and adults alike. Communication brings people together in so many ways! It feeds my soul to teach a parent to stimulate his or her child's communication skills just as much as it excites me to help an adult improve his or her fluency. I love helping people to connect; and being a speech-language pathologist enables me to facilitate connections!
