Hi! I am an ASHA-certified speech and language pathologist (commonly referred to as a SLP) who is currently licensed to practice in seven states across the U.S.
I am a Michigan native who first became interested in the field of communication science and speech therapy halfway through college at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, where I had started out studying linguistics and journalism. I then continued my educational and clinical journey in the speech pathology master’s program at UMass Amherst.
I started doing travel therapy in 2015, following the completion of my clinical fellowship and then some at a New England speech therapy clinic with a focus on local school contracts. I had dreamed of traveling and doing travel therapy for the longest time, but was also super interested in learning how to start my own practice right away. I have since worked in a variety of medical settings nationwide and road tripped to 42 out of the 48 contiguous United States countless times.
In between my travel assignments, I create and sell landscape oil paintings, take backpacking trips around the world, and enjoy time with my family in the Midwest. I also provide private clients of all ages with independent speech therapy and telepractice/teletherapy services. I spend time doing different activities including, though not limited to, rock climbing, hiking, meditating, reading, practicing yoga, and getting involved in creative projects like video editing ... lots of interests.
