My Story

For as long as I can remember, I have always been passionate about working with children and have experiences doing so in several different environments. I find joy in even the smallest of moments when working with children and find it incredible to observe how fast they learn and grow. When searching for a career, I took an interest to speech-language pathology because of the field’s integration of so many diverse components, which include several of my interests, such as language, literacy, healthcare, and so much more. I look forward to working closely with my clients as individuals as a pediatric speech-language pathologist!

Masters of Science in Speech-Language Pathology,
Rush University

Bachelor of Science in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences,

My Professional Goals

  1. To form strong relationships with my clients as individuals as well as their families.
  2. To expand on my clinical skills and knowledge during my clinical fellowship year through clinical experience, professional development, and continuing education courses.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
