Aside from my role here at SpeechNet, I have also worked primarily as a Speech Pathologist within other private practices and early childhood development programs. I believe this has provided me with a wide range of experience working with a variety of different families and children. My main passion is providing families and children with the skills to meet their goals. I love that I get to work with such a wide range of children and specialty areas at SpeechNet and that we get to follow our clients’ amazing progress long term; becoming “part of the family”.
