About me

Hello! I'm Olivia. I became a licensed speech-language pathologist (SLP) in 2018. I have been interested in working with children from as early as I can remember. I grew up wanting to be an elementary school teacher but found speech-language pathology in my senior year of high school and immediately fell in love with the field. I love playing a role in empowering people to find their voice and walk alongside families to help their loved ones with communication and swallowing. I've worked in settings such as private practice (birth-5), pediatric outpatient hospital, and school. I completed a Certificate in Pediatric Dysphagia in August 2021, which focused on the assessment and treatment of children with feeding/swallowing disorders, especially young children. Much of my practice in my most recent position focused on supporting feeding/swallowing skills. I earned the ASHA ACE award twice in 2021. Earlier in 2023, I led an internal continuing education lecture on managing dysphagia in medically complex patients. During graduate school, I presented at ASHA regarding a single subject design study I completed with an adult in accent medication therapy. My clinical style is client-centered, functional, individualized/personalized, family-centric, routines-based, strengths-based and rooted in client-empowerment to create self-advocates.

I can really hear a huge difference in my son's speech. Olivia has went above and beyond and deserves a huge raise. I can actually understand my boy! Thank you guys so much for all you do.

Olivia was so excited about meeting us. She was understanding of my son’s desire to show her his favorite toy. Olivia was able to give him time to share and then put it aside, she displayed great adaptation to the situation. (My son) was able to stay connected through the whole session.

L.F./Jan 17, 2024

Therapist was professional and efficient. I felt like we were able to zero in on a recommendation quickly.

S.D.S./Oct 25, 2023

We have only had a few sessions with Olivia and I am so pleased. She is right on track with how she is working on my daughters goals. I feel like my daughter connected with her right away. This is the fastest transition to a new speech therapist we have ever had. My daughter has been doing speech for about 20 years. We are so happy we are adding more days to our speech schedule. :)

Olivia is pleasant, patient and keeps [my child] engaged
