Bio

I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and is the Senior Speech-Language Pathologist at Monarch House, an interdisciplinary centre that provides services for individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder. I work with a team of SLPs and other professionals in a family-centred and interdisciplinary model. I completed my Bachelor's of Science in Biology at the University of British Columbia and my Master's of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology at Northwestern University in Chicago. I am certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). I am on the Registry of Autism Service Providers (RASP) and registered with the College of Speech and Hearing Health Professionals of British Columbia (CSHHPBC). I am currently the Director of Public Education on the Provincial Council for the BC Association for Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (BCASLPA). I have worked with children with special needs since 2005 and has been a part of the Monarch House team since 2010. I have experience as a behaviour interventionist and has worked as an SLP in both the public and private sectors. As a SLP, I am very passionate about working with children to develop their fullest communication potential and has special interests in augmentative and alternative communication, bilingual language development and feeding disorders. I have training in Hanen, PECS, LAMP Words for Life and the SOS feeding approach. I have experience with ABA, ESDM, PRT, aided language stimulation and executive functioning. I am also passionate about the collaboration and integration of services between service providers and health professionals for individuals with multiple needs, early detection and intervention for children and advocacy.
