My Story

I have always had a passion for languages and the way language connects us to the world around us.  Combining my love of languages with my passion for working with children brought me to the career of speech-language pathology.  Helping children to gain their own voice, build connections with others, and explore their worlds is a joy each and every day.  

My Blue Bird Day

In the past two years at Blue Bird Day, I have had the honor of working with a uniquely talented and passionate group of therapists.  Working closely with providers across disciplines not only allows me to grow as a therapist, but to provide comprehensive care for the whole child.  

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. Continue to develop clinical skills as a lifelong learner through continuing education courses and formal trainings
  2. Become certified in the Hanen Program to improve clinical skills in the area of language facilitation and family coaching within the early childhood population
