About Me 
I am a native of Northern Virginia, who has been visiting the beautiful state of North Carolina since a very young age. I moved to Swansboro, North Carolina in 2005 where I became a preschool teacher and I found my passion for helping children with communication delays/disorders. In 2010, I attended East Carolina University (GO Pirates!) with a major in Communication Science and Disorders and a minor in psychology. Once I completed my undergraduate degree at ECU, I attended Western Carolina University for my Master's in Speech Language Pathology. I joined John Lawrence Elementary team in August of 2018.
What is a Speech Language Pathologist??
Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) screen, evaluate, and administer direct therapy in the areas of fluency, voice, articulation, and academic/social language for eligible children. Students who meet the NC guidelines for speech and language services are provided service under the Exceptional Children's umbrella and receive services to address their individual needs. 
What are each of the areas SLP's Serve?
FLUENCY: refers to interruptions in a child's speech due to stuttering events. Stuttering events can include repetitions, blocks, and prolongations. 
VOICE: refers to the vocal quality of a child's voice- how harsh and/or breathy an individuals voice is.
LANGUAGE:refers to a child's ability to understand or use oral language in a variety of contexts/ways.
ARTICULATION: refers to the child's sound inventory and how he or she produces each of the sounds in his/her language.
