Professional Experience

I began my career as a speech-language pathologist in a public school serving pre-school through 5th grade students. I transitioned to providing outpatient pediatric services at Sunnyview Rehabilitation hospital before moving into private practice.

Throughout much of my career I also worked as an adjunct instructor and clinical supervisor in the CSD program at the College of Saint Rose before eventually joining as a full-time member of the department.

Teaching Interests

I have taught a variety of courses during my time at the college. I currently teach the undergraduate Clinical Methods course, the graduate First Practicum Seminar course and
the graduate Language and Hearing Loss course.
