I attended the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) in 2007 and a Master’s degree in CSD in 2009. I obtained my Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology (CCC-SLP), the national certification for a speech-language pathologist, after finishing my clinical fellowship year in 2010. My career began as a speech-language pathologist in 2009 when I started working at Friendly Hills Middle School. Two of my favorite hobbies are running and traveling. I try to run at least one marathon a year, and one of my long-term goals is to run a marathon in every US state.
