Joe Walker Elementary STAFF SPOTLIGHT
My role in the district is to help students communicate more effectively, whether that relates to their articulation (speech sound production skills), expressive or receptive language skills, stuttering, or communicating using a different modality, such as sign language, PECS, or an assistive technology (AAC devices). School-based SLPs focus on helping students whose communication skills have an adverse effect on their academic or social performance. Overall, we strive to help students feel confident in their communication skills at school. Currently, I treat 60+ students who demonstrate a communication disorder across Joe Walker and Claysville Elementary each week.
-This is my 3rd year at McGuffey, and my 5th year as an SLP. I LOVE what I do!
A little bit about me: When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband and sweet puppy. My husband and I enjoy traveling and taking trips to new places, and we have a goal to visit every US national park together. I also enjoy creating hand-written signs for others, and providing rental packages for events, (such as weddings) with my lettering services on beautiful mirrors. This is something I really enjoy doing. It's a great creative outlet!
