I have enjoyed being a Speech-Language Pathologist at The Heights Community School since December 2016.
The sweetest moments of my life have stemmed from the ability to communicate with my family, friends and the larger community. Being a Speech-Language Pathologist at SPPS I get to help students communicate better - whether they need help with expressing themselves or understanding their teachers and classmates.
The 2020-2021 school year will prove to be another fun year, as we begin with Distance Learning. Since starting Distance Learning in March 2020, I have been learning about how to engage students and their families through video and online platforms. I look forward to another interesting year, and hope to connect with my students and families again in a meaningful way.
Outside of school, I can be found kayaking down whitewater; walking, running or biking around the neighborhood; or trying a new recipe (...I just picked Cherry Crab Apples from my neighbors tree and made a yummy pie!)
If you have any questions or concerns about your students communication, please contact me. I love to talk about communication!
