I am currently a speech language pathologist at Chicago Public schools where I work with students ranging in age from preschool to eighth grade. I have previous experience evaluating and treating a variety of communication needs including articulation/phonology disorders, apraxia of speech, receptive/expressive language disorders, social communication disorders, fluency disorders, and dyslexia and reading difficulties. I have attended trainings in the area of AAC to help students develop functional communication. I love learning about the individual needs and interests of my students to develop treatment plans that will maximize their ability to communicate. I believe that collaboration with all stakeholders in a child’s life is instrumental to developing his or her speech and language skills!
When I’m not running around the city with my dog Aspen, you can find me reading a new book, walking on the lakefront path, or at the ballet!
