Hi. I am one of the speech therapists in the ASPIRE program at South Elementary School. This is my first year here working in this school and am enjoying working with the staff and kids. My background includes receiving a masters in Communicative Disorders with a specialty in fluency and autism. I've worked in both schools in the Round Lake area and Elgin area all the while providing treatment and evaluations to the birth to three population in the Early Intervention program. I paused my work in the schools for a few years to have more time with my two sons: Ethan age 11 and Liam age 10, but continued to provide part time private therapy to the pediatric population and work with the Early Intervetion program. In recent years, I honed my skills in the area of Apraxia and feeding. The field of speech therapy is so dynamic and exciting and I look forward to becoming more involved in the progress of the kids here at South Elementary.
