Briefly describe your experience and education:

I have been working as a speech-language pathologist for 25 years. I am a graduate of the University of NH where I received a BS and MS in Communication Disorders. I have done some additional coursework in infant-family intervention at Old Dominion University. I owned and operated a private practice in Arlington, VA from 1998-2008 before moving back to my roots in New England and starting Miracle Farm Speech Therapy in 2008.

Why do you love speech therapy?

I love working with kids!!! Speech therapy is never boring, always challenging, and very rewarding. There is nothing more important than giving someone the power to communicate.

What are your passions outside of work?

I love spending time with my family. I love sports, especially running, biking, skiing, football. I enjoy summer on the boat or at the beach and winter in the mountains. I love my dogs.

If you could be any animal what would it be?

A big slobbery Labrador retriever

What is your guilty pleasure?
