    I have been working for St. Helens School District since the 2014-2015 school year.  I currently provide speech-language pathology (SLP) services to McBride Elementary, Columbia City, and Arthur Academy.  I love working with children and helping them to communicate to the best of their abilities.  The areas of need that I work on with students include:  articulation, stuttering, using technology to enhance communication, receptive and expressive language, and social use of language.

    I started my career in education in 2003 as a Montessori Preschool teacher, which I did for six years.  I then went to Portland State University to study speech and hearing sciences.  I received my master’s degree in 2013 and completed my clinical fellowship year with Jefferson County Educational Service District.  I am very happy to work in St. Helens School District with a caring and compassionate community of  teachers and staff members.      

    If you have any questions regarding your child’s speech or language please feel free to contact me.  I will be happy to speak with you on the phone or to communicate via email.
