I’ve always loved working and volunteering with children since my teen years as a camp counselor and teacher assistant. After learning more at a university information session about how SLPs help people communicate, I knew this career path was right for me. I was excited to begin my journey to helping people achieve their highest potential for communicating! I graduated from Baylor University with a BA in Communication Sciences and Disorders. After working several years in the home health field as an SLP Assistant, I completed graduate school at Eastern New Mexico University and earned my MS degree in Speech-Language Pathology. It was there I realized my desire to work with the pediatric population. Once I graduated, I began working in a pediatric private practice setting with children ages 18 months to teenage years who have a variety of communication disorders and diagnosis including autism, Down syndrome, apraxia and global delay.

I have a strong love for working with children and focusing on prioritizing functional skills for their everyday needs. I love helping families see growth and progress and enjoy collaborating with parents to use a team approach in addressing each child’s individual needs.
