The ability to communicate effectively is such an important part of our everyday lives! As a speech-language pathologist for more than 20 years, I have been blessed to be able celebrate my clients' milestones with them, both large and small.
The reason I love working at Augustana is because I get to continue as a practicing clinician, but I am also helping to teach and inspire the next generation of professionals! I consider myself to be a bit of an "eclectic"in my professional life - I love to learn, and have happily attended conferences and workshops that will help me to be a valuable member of the Communication Sciences and Disorders department, including working with tongue thrust, accent modification, fluency disorders, voice disorders, and aural rehabilitation.
I hope that students will see my commitment to my clients and be inspired to reach for their very best!
