I graduated from Minot State University with a Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 2005 after having completed a Bachelor of Arts Degreee in Psychology from the University of Regina. I have years of experience working with infant/toddler, preschool, school age children and their families in a variety of settings.

I feel honored to be a part of my client’s journey and have the utmost respect for families and the demands that are placed on them. I am committed to ensuring every client I work with is engaged and becomes the best possible communicator that he/she can be. I continually particpate in professional development to ensure practices are current. I teach part-time at MacEwan University in the Speech-Language Pathology Assistant program.
