I am originally from the Chicago Area. I studied Communication Disorders from Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan and Audiology from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Michigan. I worked as an Audiologist in Chicago for 7 years before moving to Arizona.
After moving to Arizona, I worked as a Speech Language Technician (SLT) with several school districts before coming to Deer Valley . I have been in the Deer Valley Unified School District since 2007 first as an SLT, then as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant (SLP-A) at both Legend Springs School and Mirage Elementary. As of August 2014, I started as the new District Audiologist.
