I am a licensed pediatric speech-language pathologist in Columbus, Ohio. I am clinically certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and am board certified through the Ohio Speech and Hearing Professionals Board. I obtained my Masters Degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Emerson College in Boston, Massachusetts.
I have nine years of experience working with the pediatric population in an early intervention and educational setting where I specialize in early language development and communication. I provide family-centered care, which focuses on coaching caregivers on ways to incorporate evidence-based strategies and principles into everyday routines, activities, and play with their child, in order to support and promote their child's language and communication development. I am very passionate about helping parents find new and different ways to interact with their child in a way that truly creates change, progress, and growth.
In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, gardening, learning the art of ceramics, and exploring Columbus. I look forward to meeting you and working together to help your Little Sprout grow!
If you are concerned about your child's communication development, please reach out for support and avoid the "wait and see" approach. Early action is key! Also, you do not need a referral from your pediatrician to seek out support from a speech-language pathologist. I am here to support you and your child.
