Kelowna, BC, Canada
I obtained my Masters in Speech Pathology from the University of Alberta. I have experience working for school boards and in public health helping children ages 8 months to 18 years with speech and language needs. I have had the opportunity to work closely with parents, educators and assistants to help children make progress across different settings. I have taken extra training in the area of Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS) and in providing treatment to students with dyslexia and/or reading disabilities. I'm registered with Speech and Hearing BC and nationally with Speech-Language Audiology Canada.
