My Advocacy

My Story

I was introduced to the field of speech-language pathology by a good family friend when I was in high school. After I completed my undergraduate degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences I witnessed a close family member experience a severe stroke that significantly impacted her speech and language. I watched her find her voice again through rigorous therapy and family support.

She continues to inspire me every day and is a great reminder of why I chose this field. There is no better feeling than helping someone find their voice.
