Brief info

What does it mean to you to understand and to be understood? Positive experiences and relationships are built on our ability to effectively express ourselves, understand the expressions of others, and connect in meaningful ways with life and those we share it with.

For as long as I can remember, one of the greatest loves of my life has been expression. Be it talking, singing, dancing, laughing, creating art, acting out stories, learning languages, competing in sports, showing love, or any other way I could express the thoughts, feelings, and desires of my heart. Expression seems always to be the means by which I feel closest to others and most like myself. Specializing in communication, and working with others to grow and improve upon their communication skills to better access the world around them, feels like something I was born to do.

Growing up in beachy California and sunny Arizona, I moved to Utah for college where I was awed by the reality of four seasons! So much to love! During my undergraduate education, I learned American Sign Language and have since used ASL in a variety of personal and professional endeavors. After completing my bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders at Brigham Young University, I had the privilege of moving from sea to shining sea, attending an incredible graduate program in Speech-
Language Pathology at The George Washington University in Washington D.C. It was there that I gained both education and experience in articulation, language, fluency, voice and resonance, swallowing, hearing, cognitive aspects of communication, social communication, and communication modalities.

Since then, I’ve worked with children and adults as an SLP in a variety of settings, including private practice, early intervention, skilled nursing facilities, preschool, and public elementary schools. In all settings and with each and every patient, student, and client, I have gained greater awareness of individuality and deeper understanding of the importance of approaching our work together from evaluation to treatment with individual identities, values, beliefs, abilities, desires, and goals in mind.

I love what I do. I look forward to supporting you and your loved ones in gaining greater access to the connection and communication you personally desire.
