    I have been working in Forsyth County since 2008. I have been providing speech therapy to the elementary population since 2006. Prior to that, I was in private practice for 11 years, providing speech therapy to all ages. I have a Masters in Speech and Language Pathology from Valdosta State University. I love working with children and helping them better their ability to communicate with others.

    I find joy in supporting students and families along their educational and communication journeys. I have a bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Georgia and a master’s degree in Speech and Language Pathology from the University of Memphis.  In 2005, I started my career at the Atlanta Speech School as a classroom-based SLP and then a diagnostician working with children who have language-based learning disabilities. Following a move to Boone, NC, I had the privilege of owning a small, mobile private practice for 5 years working primarily with preschoolers with speech and language delays.  Our family returned to Georgia in the summer of 2019, and I was able to join the team at Vickery Creek Elementary.  My husband and I have two sons who attend PMES and a daughter who is in pre-k.  I am greatly looking forward to working with the students at Poole’s Mill this year!

     I have been working as a school-based speech-language pathologist (SLP) since 2013. I have enjoyed working with all school-aged populations from preschool through high school.  My education includes a master’s of science in communication disorders from Auburn University and a bachelor’s degree in speech pathology and audiology from Miami University. I hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association. I am looking forward to a great year at Poole’s Mill!
