Although originally from Stanford, California, I also lived in El Paso, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada before moving to Colorado. I completed my undergraduate degree in Fine Arts at CSU in Ft. Collins. Many years later, I completed my Master’s degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at CU Boulder. I am now in my 9th year of practice, and love working in the schools! I am especially passionate about early language development and literacy skills, and love connecting students with the language of stories and books. My personal dream is to someday own a small hobby farm where I can also provide environmental and animal-mediated language therapy. I love reading, the outdoors, my daughter Emmalynn and husband Graham, and our many pets!
