Work History:
During my undergraduate and graduate studies I worked in a variety of settings including schools, early intervention, and adult and pediatric clinical settings. After graduating from Nazareth College I completed my clinical fellowship year and first year of practice at a special needs preschool located in Rochester, NY. I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of populations, however have always had a passion for working with children which led me here to Young Talkers. I have experience working with clients in the following areas: Autism, AAC, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Hearing Impairment, aphasia, fluency, articulation, and Speech and Language Delays.

Welcome to Young Talkers!

Our mission is to provide quality speech-language and feeding therapy services to the pediatric and adult population in order to enhance their verbal/non-verbal communication and feeding skills. We accomplish this by identifying concerns through specialized evaluations and the development of goals to meet the needs of the patient and the family.
