  • This is my 4th year as a Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) in the St. Helens School District!  I have previously worked in both the Hillsboro and Rainier School districts.  As an SLP, I provide specially designed instruction to students with Communication Disorders.  This may include, but is not limited to, difficulties with articulation, receptive and expressive language, and social communication skills.  Currently I provide speech and language services at Lewis and Clark Elementary School and Arthur Academy.

    I earned my Bachelor of Music in Education from Pacific University in 2001.  From there, I went on to Willamette University in Salem, OR to pursue an equivalency degree in Music Therapy.  I have practiced as a nationally board certified music therapist for over 15 years with individuals ranging from early childhood to 90 years old!  I continued my education later in life, and received my Master of Science in Communication Disorders from Western Kentucky University in 2012.

    I grew up in St. Helens and graduated in the class of 1993!  It has been a wonderful experience working in the community and school district that I loved as a child and again love today!  My husband and I have one son, 3 dogs, 3 chickens, 3 parakeets, and 1 cockatiel--it's a real zoo!  As a family, we love going camping, traveling, reading, watching movies, dressing up for Comic Cons, and just having crazy fun together.  

    It is a privilege to get to work with your children and I LOVE what I do!  Please do not hesitate to contact me or either of my SLP colleagues, Melissa Howard or Heather Braaten, if you have any questions or concerns regarding speech and language services.

Me!
