Reading, talking and learning other languages have been central to my life. I have always wanted to help others and especially enjoyed working with children but I wasnít sure how I was going to accomplish that goal. Learning other languages illustrated for me how intertwined personality is with communication. In a new language, I could not express myself as well as in my first language and I also didn't feel quite myself. This prompted me to think about the experience of children who are having challenges in their first or only language. When I found Speech-Language Pathology I was thrilled that all my interest, passions and skills connected in one career. As a Speech-Language Pathologist I have the skills and training to work with children and families to support increased communication skills and confidence. I love that kids can have fun playing, eating snack, washing their hands and be changing their futures all at the same time. Meanwhile parents can learn that by using a few tips and tricks they can make communication part of the million things they already do for their children everyday and then they donít need to find more time in their already hectic lives. For 10 years I worked with preschool children and their families predominantly in a clinic setting. It has been an amazing 10 years working with hundreds of clients and being a part of their positive changes. Now I offer convenience to families by coming to them.
