When I was volunteering at a hospital many years ago, I was given the chance to shadow a speech language pathologist. After about 30 seconds into my first day, I just knew I was called to be an SLP. I also have previous experience working with speech therapists because I used to be in speech therapy myself! As a young person, my speech therapist gave me the confidence to do anything and everything in life, and I want to give that feeling to my both my clients and their families. I really enjoy working with children of all ages. At Speech and OT of North Texas, I work with children with fluency, articulation, language, augmentative and alternative communication, autism and children who have complex communication needs. Working with such a variety of challenges is the best part of my job. I love that I never have the same day twice. I am always coming up with new therapy and activity ideas. My clients are always keeping me on my toes!
I started my speech journey at Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport where I majored in Biology and Psychology. I then attended LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport where I earned my master’s degree in speech language pathology. I have never regretted my decision to be an SLP and I love every minute of it!
