Briefly describe your experience and education.
I have been working as a Speech-Language Pathologist for 3 years. I attended the University of New Hampshire for both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Following graduate school, I worked in a variety of school settings and became partner at a private practice specializing in early childhood communication disorders. I have experience with clients of all ages and ability levels, but my passion lies in working with high-needs children, especially those with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Why do you love speech therapy?
I love speech therapy because I get to laugh every, single day. Working with children allows me to celebrate my inner child while helping them communicate at the same time. Seeing the joy on a child’s face as he/she develops a new skill is the most rewarding part of my day.
What are your passions outside of work?
I love to travel. In my free time I enjoy exploring the outdoors, camping, running, relaxing by the lake/beach, and spending time with family and friends.
What are three words someone would use to describe you?
