I'm a licensed & certified Speech-Language Pathologist working with children demonstrating speech, language or feeding impairments. With over ten years of experience,, I've had the privilege of serving children under the age of three in the Chicago-land area in their homes, elementary school-aged children in Oklahoma and children aged birth to 21 in a pediatric outpatient clinic in Northwest Arkansas where I started and supervised the speech therapy department for almost four years.
In July of 2018, I announced that I was taking the plunge into private practice and making 123 Speech Therapy more than just an informational website for parents & therapists, but an actual business! I specialize in feeding disorders, late talkers and social language skills and competencies. I will be practicing in the Northwest Arkansas region seeing children both individually and in group sessions.
In October 2017, I became a consultant for Usborne Books & More after falling in love with their amazing books for my speech kiddos. The books are unique, interacting and educational! I created a shop and VIP group called Read My Lips for my new book business. Let me help you find the perfect books for your children!
Some of my favorites include Starbucks frappuccinos, college football (Go Pokes!), a good pen, Target dollar aisle, painted nails, Just Fab and the Dave Matthews Band. I recently got married in September 2017 to the love of my life, Joe.. Some of our favorite things to do include traveling, going to Cubs/Cards baseball games (enemy love) and hanging out with our sweet PBGV dog, Elli Mae.
