I am a graduate from Eastern Kentucky University where I earned both my undergraduate and graduate degree in communication disorders. I have been a speech therapist since 2006 and I love my job. I love working with kids and helping them learn. I primarily work with kindergarten students but often work with preschool and some first graders. During my career as a therapist, I have gotten to work with children as young as 3 and as old 90. My experience in the field of speech therapy is diverse. I have worked in the school setting, hospital setting, and nursing home setting. It is a true pleasure to work at Straub Elementary. I enjoy the students and the family environment.
