I love helping others eat, drink, communicate, and celebrate life every day. I am licensed by the board of Pennsylvania and have my Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech Language Hearing Association. I attended attended West Chester University of Pennsylvania, where I completed my bachelor's degree and master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology. My practicum experiences in graduate school included working in the acute care, inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation centers, TBI rehabilitation hospital, elementary schools, and skilled nursing facilities. During my professional career, I gained experience working in skilled nursing facilities, personal care homes, dementia and memory support units, adult day centers, assistant living facilities, and home health. I received specialized training in 2018 and became certified in VitalStim® Therapy System, which is a non-invasive therapy to help swallowing through the use of Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES). I'm also certified to administer the Brief Cognitive Assessment Tool (BCAT®) if mild cognitive impairment (MCI), memory loss, and/or dementia is suspected. I had the pleasure to work with adults with CP, MS, Parkinson’s, Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA), dysarthria, apraxia, and dysphagia. I am skilled in training residents to utilize speech generating devices (SGD) with touch screens and/or eye gaze systems. I am a wife and mother to two children, Dylan and Josslyn and opened this private practice in 2020. (Photo by TrueVine Photography)
