Speech Pathologist

I love being a speech pathologist because I love to help people be able to express themselves and be understood, as well as support them to explore different foods. Whether that be through speaking, writing, or using a device. I love to help people learn to interact with others through play. I love working with early speech and language development as well as literacy, I have also completed training in orofacial myology to support better breathing, sleeping, speech and orofacial development. Where possible I like to use play to create learning opportunities.

During my spare time I like to: get outside and explore the world through hiking, camping, and snorkeling. I also love to create things through sewing, cooking, baking, and crocheting.
