My Story

I decided to become a speech-language pathologist due to my interest in both the school and medical settings. When exploring the field, I thought this was a great blend of my two interests. Through the courses and clinical experiences, I felt that this was a field for me! I have always loved and enjoyed working with young children and have had great experiences that allowed me to strengthen my interest in pediatrics. These experiences include being a Behavior Technician, an infant hearing screener, and implementing and utilizing reading programs with young students.

My Education

Masters of Science in Speech Language Pathology,
Lewis University

My Professional Goals

  1. My goals for my career are to be able to gain continued experiences and expand my knowledge of different communication needs. I also want to gain the opportunity to collaborate with both caregivers and other disciplines to provide continued success and growth for the child.

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.
