I am a full time Speech/Language Pathologist working at Palos East School.  I have worked for the district since 2004.  Prior to joining Palos 118, I maintained a private practice while raising my family.  I earned my B.A. in Speech Language Pathology from Saint Xavier University, and my M.A. in Communication Disorders from Northern Illinois University.  I hold the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech- Language- Hearing Association, and licensure with the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation.  I maintain professional membership in the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association, the Illinois Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and the South Cook County Speech- Hearing- Language Association. 

Outside of Palos East, I enjoy spending time with my husband John and our seven children.  We can often be found at various sporting events or at the lake.
