I’m currently finishing my dissertation in Speech Pathology, studying the speech development in children with and without siblings on the autism spectrum.  I started out majoring in linguistics, worked at a speech research startup firm for a decade or so, and moved into the clinical side of the speech field.  My clinical specialty is working with individuals with autism and related social and language challenges.  For hobbies, I knit as much as I possibly can, make my own jewelry, and sometimes row on the Charles River.  I also have three cats and a husband, but no children.
