    My passion and success in the field can be directly attributed to the students and families I have had the privilege of working with over these many years. On most days I feel they have taught me more about this profession than any preparation program I ever attended. Their strength and will to succeed is truly inspirational!

    "I believe that children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride....No matter what they take away from me, they can't take away my dignity....Learning to love yourself. It's the greatest love of all!"

    I have been a physical therapist for thirty years and have worked in a variety of settings, but throughout all my experiences, I have always been drawn to working with kids.  I love working with children of all ages.  What fun and an honor to work with families and their babies in their homes.  I enjoy the enthusiasm of the preschool years through the early elementary years.  I love the sarcasm of the tween years and the maturity and life planning in the high school years.  I feel so privileged that I am one of the few staff members that experience every stage of development at work every week.

    My educational philosophy, as a speech-language pathologist for the special education birth to three years old home program, is that parents are their child's best teacher, and it is my job to facilitate that by working with the parents and families to teach them how to specifically address their child's communication needs in their home and community settings.  I go into the homes of children on my caseload and teach, train, and coach parents, siblings and caregivers how to interact and play with their child in different ways to help the child learn and grow in all areas of their development, specifically the areas that are delayed.

    STRENGTH  doesn’t come from what you can’t do.  It comes from OVERCOMING the things you once thought YOU COULDN’T.

    I am a believer in trying things before saying I can’t do something because all things are possible with a little hard work, and sometimes some modification. You never know if you can do something unless you try.

    There is nothing better than witnessing the spark when it ignites a passion for learning in a student. I first witnessed this igniting of a spark over twenty years ago while teaching swim lessons to children. They could enter the pool area afraid to even put their toes in the water and by the end of the session we had them jumping in and wanting more.
