I've been a Speech Language Pathologist since 1997. During that time I've worked in home health, preschools, K-12, and private practice settings. Before SLP Toolkit, I worked as the the lead SLP for K-12 SLPs in the largest school district in Arizona. I have been a guest speaker in ASU speech and hearing classes, have mentored students and new SLPs in the field of speech pathology, and have had the role of supporting all SLPs (new and veteran) in the district via trainings and development of materials. I have extensive experience in presenting to groups on topics related to communication disorders. I developed a district speech website for organizing information for SLPs in the district to easily have access to information they need and have developed materials for that site. In addition, my work as lead SLP placed me on a general education committee for 2 years that worked on developing resources for teachers to interpret and implement the Common Core Standards within the district. I am a graduate of Florida International University with an undergraduate degree in Psychology and of Arizona State University with a Master’s degree in Communication Disorders. I am a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), belong to ASHA SIG (Special Interest Group) 16, which focuses on school based issues, and hold an ASHA ACE award for continuing education excellence. I've worked as an SLP in Tennessee, St. Croix U.S.V.I., California, and Arizona.
