Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology
Speech and Language Delays
Name the moment that inspired you to take your career path.
While working as an Intensive Behavior Interventionist, parents frequently requested to work on functional communication skills including speech, language, and social skills to support meeting their needs. These experiences introduced me to the field of communication science and disorders.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
Working as a team player with families, service providers, and clients to support developmental growth.
What do you love most about working at Eyas Landing?
Our clients and families!
How has the supervision at Eyas Landing supported your professional growth?
My supervisor is accessible to answer questions and share resources, research, and advice.
Is there anything else you’d like to add about yourself?
As a speech language pathologist, I believe that clients advance their skills when treatment is individualized and tailored to their specific needs.
I fell in love with Speech-Language Pathology while working as a Behavior Therapist with children. I worked with children in schools and in-home for four years as a behaviorist, but I truly found my passion supporting children to communicate their wants and needs. I attended the Speech, Language, and Learning graduate program at Northwestern University to learn from my professors and absorb the advice of my clinical supervisors. I graduated in June of 2019 and earned my Clinical License in March of 2020. I thoroughly enjoy supporting the development of all of my clients while collaborating with my coworkers and families.
