Why did you choose Speech-Language Pathology?
I have always had a passion for helping and teaching others. While I was completing my undergraduate degree in French Studies, I realized that I really enjoyed learning about linguistics and the particulars of language and speech. Through that discovery, and the passion for teaching others, I came across the profession of Speech-Language Pathology, and realized it hit all my boxes!
What ages of clients do you treat?
I have most of my experience working with preschool and school-aged children, but I have facilitated groups for teenagers, and I enjoy working with them equally.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in French Studies, with a minor in psychology, at the University of Windsor in 2017. Originally from Ontario, I moved here in 2017 to complete my Master of Science with the University of Alberta, finishing in 2019. Shortly afterwards, I completed the graduate certificate program in Francophone Practice for SLPs. My approach to treatment is to find the most functional goals for the client and family, and work with them to accomplish it. I enjoy making treatment fun and engaging, keeping in mind the client’s strengths. I am a strong advocate for a client’s communication needs, using their preferences for how they communicate with the world.
When not at work, you’ll find me spending time with my spouse and cats, or diving into my latest craft hobby. I enjoy knitting, crocheting, sewing, embroidering, or anything that helps pass the time!
