I became a speech language pathologist because it combined my passions of working with children, teaching, and the medical field.  I began my education at the University of North Texas with additional training in child development and American Sign Language. I continued my education by obtaining my Master’s degree at Abilene Christian University where I assisted in phonological awareness research. Prior to joining the Speech and Occupational Therapy team, I worked with clients aged 1-85 years old with various backgrounds and communication needs. I chose to come to Speech and OT family because I believe in the team-oriented nature that is exuded by all therapists and staff.

I have experience in a variety of areas within the scope of practice of a speech-language pathologist including articulation, autism, phonology, language, fluency, and feeding. I continue to seek the most up to date research to make sure I’m providing the best practice for you and your child. I look forward to sharing in the growth and development of your child’s feeding and communication needs, big and small!​
