My Story

Growing up, I always knew I wanted to work in a human service field but wasn’t sure what avenue to take when I was preparing for college. I ended up falling into the field of Speech-Language Pathology through an experience with a family member and decided to explore it seriously. Through courses, observations, and clinical opportunities, I was fascinated by the amount of skills and opportunities that this field offers. Fast forward almost 10 years later and I am so grateful to be an SLP in the Chicago area. I love the constant opportunity for professional and personal growth that being a Speech-Language Pathologist provides.

My Blue Bird Day
