Meet the founder of Clear Path Pediatric Therapy...
My passion for helping children and young adults improve their speech and language began at a young age, when I began to shadow experienced Speech and Language Pathologists in the field. I admired the dedication and passion those Speech and Language Pathologists demonstrated towards their clients and the instant gratification from children being able to produce new words each day. With my immense amount of compassion towards others, patience, persistence, resourcefulness and adaptability, I knew this would be the perfect career choice!
I am a Pennsylvania-licensed Speech and Language Pathologist with vast experience with the pediatric population. Along with my private practice, I also work for the Pennsylvania Early Intervention (EI) Birth-3 program, servicing children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), Down syndrome, several other syndromes and disorders, apraxia, dysarthria, feeding and swallowing disorders, expressive and receptive language delays, and augmentative and alternative communication needs. Prior to EI, I received experience with school-aged children, creating and implementing treatment plans for children with ASD and other syndromes/disorders, articulation, phonology, and motor speech disorders, language delays and disorders, fluency disorders, cognitive-communication disorders, and pre-literacy and literacy delays.
I was born and raised in Mechanicsburg, and am happy to continue to service this area that I have grown to love! I now live just outside of Mechanicsburg with my husband and our two wonderful dogs, Charlee (English Bulldog) and Wilson (Retriever/Shepherd). When I am not seeing patients, I love to spend time with my family, travel, watch sports, and further my education and skill-set at an SLP.
