Speech-Language Pathologist

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Miami University of Ohio in 2011 and earned my Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Bowling Green State University in 2013.  I hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, Ohio licensure in Speech-Language Pathology, and a Pupil Services License from the Ohio Department of Education.  Throughout my career I have provided speech/language services in a variety of settings, including schools, hospitals, and clinics.  My interests include the areas of articulation/phonology, receptive and expressive language, pragmatic interactions, and speech fluency.  Augmentative and alternative communication and feeding/swallowing are becoming additional areas of interest.

My passion for speech-language therapy stems from a desire to help improve individuals’ quality of life.  That passion grows every time I get to celebrate progress with a client and their family, whether that progress occurred in the therapy environment or at home.  I strongly believe in a family centered approach, in which families are considered an essential part of treatment plan development and therapy.  Being a part of the wonderful team of therapists at Flourish Integrated Therapy allows me to collaborate with other disciplines, which I have found is key in tailoring the most effective, holistic treatment approach for each unique individual.  I strive to provide a patient, compassionate, and fun learning environment so that clients enjoy the time they spend developing their communication skills.
