My first word, according to my mom, was “french fries.” I know, I know. But it was before the time of organic food and healthy eating, and everyone secretly loves french fries! Anyway, when I grew up I became a speech-language pathologist. I truly found my passion in working with children and families focusing on early speech and language development. I have been dedicated to giving parents the knowledge they need to feel confident as their child’s BEST communication partner!
I am Hanen certified and have carried out four sessions of Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk programs. I have supervised students and clinical fellows, trained school staff, served as a Speech Therapy Department supervisor in Brooklyn, NY and served as a clinical manager in Walnut Creek, CA. But most importantly I’ve worked with a lot of children and families, in several different states, helping those children to tell their stories in their own words. I wanted to reach even more families, in more places, and I created Little Stories with that purpose in mind.
I currently work in private practice in beautiful Savannah, GA. In addition to working, I enjoy blogging, contributing over at Modern Parents Messy Kids, spending time with my husband, volunteering with my therapy dog, and listening to my daughter’s story begin to unfold.
