I have been a Speech Therapist for going on 7 years. I grew interested in the profession as I was in college and was investigating career paths that centered on building relationships with others and helping them. I love how my profession focuses on improving the ability to communicate in others, which is a basic and essential human function. I have had the awesome opportunity to work with so many good people, from children to elderly, in both English and Spanish, my second language. My favorite age groups to work with are early childhood to adolescent.
Current areas of interest in my profession are childhood language deficits, childhood learning disabilities and stuttering.
I have lived in Idaho Falls for several years and graduated with my Master’s Degree from Idaho State University in 2007. I am married and am a gather to an adopted son and a biological baby daughter. My interests and hobbies include anything in the great Idaho outdoors; snowboarding, four wheeling, water sports, and anything physically challenging such as marathons and bike races. My goal is to qualify for
the Boston Marathon next year.
