I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a Master’s Degree in Communication Disorders in the summer of 1996. Upon moving to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area I worked as a secondary school based SLP for the Richardson ISD. I then began working with geriatric patients in a long term care facility providing speech therapy for patients presenting with strokes, swallowing disorders and dementia/cognitive difficulties. After working for two years in a rehabilitation setting, my interest in working with elementary aged children brought me back to the public school setting. I returned to Richardson ISD as an Elementary SLP and completed 9 years before leaving to stay home with my three boys. In 2012, I made the decision to go back into the schools as an Elementary therapist but this time for Allen ISD. I currently provide speech therapy interventions targeting various language difficulties, dysfluencies, articulation and pragmatic/social language weaknesses.
I joined Speech and OT of North Texas in March 2016 and am truly enjoying my experiences with my clients and their families.
