I am an energetic speech-language pathologist who is devoted to helping children better their communication skills! I am passionate about working with children of all ages with various speech and language needs. My areas of expertise include childhood language delays and disorders, articulation and phonological disorders, developmental delays, pragmatic language disorders, autism spectrum disorders, dyslexia, stuttering, and voice disorders. I also have a passion for working with children who have difficulty with reading fluency, reading comprehension, and written expression, and I am trained in the evidence-based Orton-Gillingham reading program. I have several years of experience screening, evaluating, and treating children in a variety of settings, including preschool through high school, private practices, special education schools, outpatient clinics, parent-child care centers, and bilingual preschools. I am Early Intervention Credentialed in the State of Illinois. I strive to make therapy motivating and fun, and tailored to meet the individual needs of each child.
In my spare time, I love to practice yoga, hang out with friends and family, and explore my hometown of Chicago!
