563-421-3460 Call for an Appointment

I feel fortunate to be able to work with a variety of speech and language disorders. I love that I work in a supportive environment where we are encouraged to expand our knowledge base and that we work together as a team to achieve the best outcomes for our patients.

I decided to become a speech therapist when I researched occupations in the ancillary medical field. I enjoy working with adults in the outpatient setting and feel grateful to have worked with some wonderful individuals and their family members.
