Speech-Language Pathologist

I graduated from Marywood University in Dunmore, Pennsylvania and have been practicing as a Speech-Language Pathologist for the past ten years! Currently, I work full-time at a vocational high school in New Jersey and have my own private practice. Prior to working at the high school level, I worked with the geriatric population and worked part-time for an early intervention agency. I specialize in child language, articulation, and executive functioning disorders. I became a Speech-Language Pathologist after watching my brother struggle with a communication disorder as a child. He was consistently teased by other kids and I wanted to make sure that no child ever felt the way that he did because of something they couldn’t control. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, 3-year-old daughter and 6-month-old son. I also have two cats, Slim and Batman and dream of having a sled team of Siberian Huskies one day! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you need any assistance!
