I have been employed as a speech/language pathologist in the Oak Harbor Public Schools since 2006, working primarily with the preschool population. I enjoy teaching and playing with our preschoolers and love seeing the progress they make throughout the year.
Most of my childhood was spent in California. I attended graduate school at the University of Washington, and moved to Washington permanently in 1994. Although I was raised in the heat of California's Central Valley, I cherish the beauty and cool, rainy weather of the Pacific Northwest.
My husband and I have three grown children, one boy and two girls. The eldest of which has Down Syndrome and is a childhood cancer survivor! Therefore, I have experience with the world of special needs from both a parental and professional perspective.
