I decided on a career in speech pathology because I felt the field would challenge me intellectually while at the same time allow me to work closely with patients. It is very rewarding to be able to help people enhance and preserve their communications skills. I do this by offering the latest speech evaluation and treatment methods in communication disorders. Also, my patients find me to be very enthusiastic, compassionate and supportive of them. That’s because I have a genuine concern for the difficulties they are experiencing. You will notice this from the minute we first meet..
With my education, advanced training and years of experience, I am confident that I can improve my patients’ quality of life. I earned my masters degree in Communications Disorders from Wayne State University in Detroit, and I make a point of staying on top of the latest advances in my field through research as well as membership in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
