About me

Hello, I'm Cathleen! I became a licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 1987. I needed to find a way to mix medical interest with a love of the English language--what better way than being an SLP! I have worked in a university as a professor teaching medical writing; in child language, phonology, and neurology; and supervised in a clinic. I've worked in settings such as hospitals, schools, outpatient clinics, rehabilitation centers, private practice, teleheath, and home health care. My doctorate is in Global Health, and I did my dissertation on caregiver stress in dementia populations. I would describe my clinical style as individualized/personalized and rooted in client empowerment by creating self-advocates.
