About Me

I am a speech-language pathologist working with a variety of patient populations from pediatrics to geriatrics. I feel blessed to help patients of all ages communicate with their loved ones and am encouraged and inspired daily by the progress my patients make. I know I have achieved success in therapy when patients and their caregiver are able to effectively apply skills and strategies learned in treatment to their everyday lives. I also have the privilege of participating in speech and swallowing research initiatives through the Duke Motor Speech Lab. I feel my experience in research continually strengthens my clinical skills. Outside of the clinic, I enjoy running and cheering on my Central Florida Knights and Florida Gators.
