I received my B.A. in Social Sciences from The Ohio State University and my M.A. in Speech Pathology from Cleveland State University. I have worked as a speech language pathologist in the schools and have coordinated and directed summer speech programs for preschool children. I have worked in long term care settings serving stroke, Parkinson, Alzheimer and dementia patients. I developed and published two remedial programs; Testing and Remediating Auditory Processing for preschool and elementary students and R and L Stories Galore, a remedial articulation program. My areas of interest are phonemic awareness, phonology and articulation, auditory and language processing and reading and literacy. Currently I am a clinical instructor in the English Language Proficiency Clinic (ELPC) providing accent reduction and phonological and articulation therapy for international students and faculty.
