About Our Guest
I am a licensed speech-language pathologist in the state of Illinois and have been practicing since 2015. I have provided speech therapy for adults in various clinical settings throughout this time, including acute hospital, inpatient rehabilitation, home health care, outpatient rehabilitation, and outpatient teletherapy. My experience includes evaluating and treating adults who have ADHD, aphasia, autism, brain injury, Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, and speech disorders.
Being an effective speech therapist requires a commitment to a lifetime of learning. I love to read and learn, and I am always taking classes to improve my professional knowledge and skills.
