As a pediatric speech language pathologist, I am here to help you and your child improve on speech, language, and feeding skills. I work with your child’s primary care doctor and other medical professionals, as well as teachers, to meet your child’s needs.
I received my Bachelors of Science in Communication Disorders from Texas Christian University in Spring of 2005 followed by my Masters of Science in Communication Disorders from The University of Texas at Dallas in the Fall of 2006. After graduation, I started at Children’s Health working in the outpatient and acute care settings. I continued for the next 4 years developing a passion for patients with feeding and swallowing disorders and started to really focus on pediatric patients demonstrating difficulties with eating and swallowing. In Spring of 2011, I moved into the home health setting and began working at Therapy 2000 where I developed a love for working with patients in their home environment. After 2 years in home health, Children’s asked me to re-join the team and help build a home health agency. I spent 4 years building a wonderful program offering therapy (PT, OT, and speech), skilled nursing, and home medical equipment to pediatric patients in their home and community setting. I have been a certified member of American Speech-Language-Hearing Association since Spring of 2006 and I have been a member of the Feeding and Swallowing special interest group as well.
With all that experience, my love for children who have developmental delays and feeding delays, my desire to support their families, and the amazing help from my husband, I am ready for a new adventure. In March of 2017, I started the creation of Speech and Feeding of Frisco!
In my spare time, I love to watch my daughter tumbling around the house and my twin boys playing soccer. We have a sweet cat and recently adopted a dog. Our family volunteers at church every Sunday and look for other opportunities to serve in our community. I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
