I am a New York state licensed and an ASHA certified Speech Therapist. I received my Bachelors of Science in Health Science and Masters of Science in Speech Pathology from Long Island University. I’ve worked with children in a variety of settings including early intervention, charter schools and private sessions.

I enjoy collaborating with families and other professionals to treat clients using a team-based approach and my clinical expertise.  I’m a strong supporter of parental involvement to supplement progress and see more effective results in therapy goals.
