My career as a speech-language pathologist at The Ohio State University has spanned over the past 25 years.

From 2009-2012, I was the Program Director of the Ohio Valley Center for Brain Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation.
I joined the Department of Speech & Hearing Science in 2012 as a Clinical Assistant Professor and was promoted to Clinical Associate status in 2020. My primary responsibilities include directing the OSU Aphasia Initiative, clinical supervision, clinical program development, teaching, and service. Other areas of professional interest include interprofessional practice and service-learning.
