I am excited to be back at Prairie Crossing this year as your Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). My most recent news is we got a Dog over the summer, her name is Athena. I am excited to see everyone and hear about your new news

 I graduated with my Master's degree in speech-language pathology this year from University of Northern Colorado, but before that, I worked as an SLPA in Colorado Springs. Before that…. I have been and done a number of different things, like a scenic and costume designer in San Francisco, a ballet teacher, an actor, and a wedding florist.

Speech and language is such a diverse and incredible field, which is why I love it! In Speech therapy we will be working on, not just, how we say sounds or how we form sentences but also how we use language to think about the word, organize and understand events in our lives, and solve problems. Because we use speech and language everywhere, every day, in every way, you may find me; in classrooms, on the playground, in gym or art class, or having lunch with the students.
