I am a certified, licensed Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). I began my career by working as an SLP in public school settings with a mix of hearing, Deaf, and hard-of-hearing children. Next, I worked as a Clinical Supervisor at Northwestern University, training graduate students in the SLP program. Since then, my work experience has included supervising SLP Assistants, serving as a consultant and diagnostician for a school district, and teaching at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Once a semester I present a guest lecture at the University of Colorado about the insights I have gained through viewing the field from the perspective of an SLP who is also the parent of kids in SLP services.

My Story

My journey into this field started when I was a journalist working on a magazine and met a designer who was Deaf. He signed beautifully but could not speak. He said he would have loved to have had both options, but speech therapy for him as a child had been so dull and had felt so irrelevant to his life, he resisted going and eventually quit. As I heard similar stories from his friends and others, I became interested in the field. It was my dream to make speech therapy fun, functional, individualized, and effective.

After many years of working in the field, I decided to go back to school to get a PhD with the hope of figuring out ways to bridge the gap I kept seeing between research and clinical work. As I was writing my dissertation, I had two sons who both turned out to need SLP services. My journey with them has given me the perspective of a parent, child, and family dealing with speech issues.
