I graduated from the University of South Florida with my Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders and am currently enrolled at Nova Southeastern University where I am pursuing my Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology.
When I graduated high school, I wanted to be an elementary school teacher, so I began working in pre-schools to help give me the knowledge and background of working with children. During my years of working in pre-schools, I was blessed with the opportunity to work one-on-one with children who were autistic, had down syndrome or other learning disorders. Being there and having the ability to help make a positive difference in their lives had the biggest impact on me. Once I began the teaching program, I realized I wanted to help children on a deeper level. That is when I remembered having speech and occupational therapists in my classroom to work with the students who needed them and realized that being a speech-language pathologist is what I want and need to be.
I am excited to work with your child and give them the opportunity to communicate their wants and needs with their loved ones.
