I have always wanted to work with children and initially started college studying elementary education. I stumbled on speech pathology between my freshman and sophomore year and loved that it combined education with a medical background. I received my B.S. in Speech Language Pathology and Audiology from the University of Texas at Dallas in 2003, and my M.S. in Speech Language Pathology from the University of North Texas in 2005. I obtained an M.B.A. in Healthcare Management through Western Governor’s University in 2021.

I have worked in elementary schools, in pediatric home health, early childhood intervention and in pediatric outpatient settings. As an SLP with over 16 years of experience, I have received specialized training in the following: PROMPT Trained, Talk Tools Oral-Motor Placement Therapy, Simon Says: Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy (OMT), Gestalt Language Processing, Echolalia and Natural Language Acquisition.

I love helping a child find his/her voice! It is my desire to give families the tools they need to help their children communicate successfully.
