About Me

In 2018, I graduated from Abilene Christian University and went on to complete my Master's of Science in Speech Language Pathology at San Antonio’s University of Texas Health Science Center. Since then, I have found a passion for working with children and young adults with speech sound disorders.

Prior to pursuing a career in Speech Pathology, I served six years in the U.S. Air Force, and now I continue serving part-time in the U.S. Army Reserve. Some of my favorite things, besides speech therapy, are baking, fitness, and hanging out with my dog and cat, Darla and Maggie. 

I have advanced training in the Dynamic Temporal and Tactile Cueing (DTTC) method of treatment for Childhood Apraxia of Speech, which is currently the most research-backed method of treatment available. I have attended numerous continuing education courses hosted by experts in the field and am trained in various treatment methodologies, a few of which are listed below. Additionally, I have experience working with a variety of high-tech Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) systems. I am passionate about collaborating with families to incorporate AAC as an additional tool for their child's communication needs when appropriate. My goal is to empower children with the ability to express themselves effectively, while continuing to support and encourage the development of verbal speech skills.
