Work History:

During my graduate studies, I worked in various pediatric and adult settings including a variety of teams within hospitals, private practices, as well as elementary schools. While in the hospital setting, I conducted diagnostic testing and interpretation of results for adults presenting with traumatic brain injury, dysphagia, dysarthria, stroke, aphasia, apraxia and dementia in a variety of medical settings including inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, acute care, intensive care unit, emergency room, and geriatric-psychology settings. I completed bedside swallow evaluations as well as Modified Barium Swallow Studies (MBSS) and recommended appropriate diets and/or compensatory strategies with feeding. While in the private practice and school settings, I have experience working with individuals with anoxic brain injury, Down syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention-Hyperactivity Deficit Disorders, cochlear implants, cortical blindness, as well as phonological processing disorders, articulation disorders, fluency disorders, childhood apraxia of speech, and pragmatic deficits. I enjoy collaborating with interdisciplinary team members including physicians, social workers, occupational and physical therapists, case managers, dieticians, psychologists, social workers, and teachers.
