I graduated from the University of Akron in 2013 with my Bachelors of Art degree. After graduation, I took a year off between my college degrees and decided to travel around the United States. I enjoyed my time/education so much that I continued my education and graduated with my Masters of Arts in Speech Language Pathology in 2017 from the University of Akron. I moved to Pennsylvania after graduation and began my career as an SLP. My family and friends mean the world to me so after 1.5 years, I decided to move back to my home state to be closer to my loved ones. I currently work in a skilled rehab facility treating the geriatric population, but have experience working with both pediatric and geriatric populations in multiple settings. I am a highly motivated/creative SLP who loves to have fun while learning. In my spare time, I love to play/watch sports, cook new meals and travel the world.

COVID-19 Protocol

We hope you and your family are continuing to stay safe and healthy! We have outlined our protocols for in-person sessions during COVID-19. As you know, the health and safety of our clients and therapists remain our highest priority. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work together through these unprecedented times.

Hand Washing:
Upon arrival at your home, your therapist will wash their hands with soap and water and/or use hand sanitizer. We ask that you and your child also wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer upon your therapist’s arrival.
We are asking our therapists to wear masks upon entering your home and throughout your child’s session. That said, we understand that some children have adverse reactions to seeing adults in masks and will leave it up to you and your therapist to decide your comfort level while still taking safety precautions.
We ask that parents and caregivers also follow the guidelines and wear masks when sitting in on sessions. We will not enforce that policy, but we do kindly ask for compliance.
As for your child, we realize that masks may not be appropriate for every child so we will not enforce the rule that children over the age of 2 should wear a mask.  However, if your therapist insists that your child wear a mask, then that will be a requirement directly between the two of you. We respect our therapists’ individual comfort levels with safety precautions and ask that you respect them as well.


Protocol Acknowledgment and Health Certification:

Before your child’s first in-person session, we are asking clients to submit an acknowledgment of these protocols and a health certification, which you can find here. Thank you again for your cooperation and for helping all of us stay healthy!
