Current Research

I am a Research Speech-Language Pathologist primarily working on the lab’s Intensive Cognitive Communication Rehabilitation (ICCR) project. I spend my time in direct patient contact for facilitating ICCR’s daily classroom schedule and treatment interventions, supervising undergraduate interns, and data analysis for the purpose of assessing results and findings of the current research.


Current Projects:


Previous Clinical Experience and Interests:

My previous areas of experience vary across the lifespan, including feeding/swallowing disorders in infants in the NICU, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dementia, dysphagia (swallowing disorders), and cognitive communication deficits following stroke and brain injury. I have worked in private practice, acute care and rehabilitation, and long-term care settings. Special areas of interest I have include alternative and augmentative communication systems. I strongly believe in the integration of research, patient goals, and considering the whole family picture when carrying out research and providing clinical services to our patients.
