    Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I am honored to be a member of a team including the teachers, therapists, paraprofessionals, and your family to support your child’s communication development.

    My Education and Professional Background

    I graduated from Arizona State University in 2009 and this is my 13th year providing speech services in CUSD. I have worked with students ranging from PK-12th grade during my time in the district. I am a licensed speech-language therapist with the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Arizona Department of Education.

    My Educational Philosophy

    I believe it takes a team effort to facilitate and support a student’s growth throughout their educational experience. Every student has their own unique interests, strengths, and learning styles. I enjoy building relationships with each student and combining those things to support their communication development! I love that my job provides never ending learning opportunities, as each student teaches me something, too!
