I am currently pursuing a BS in Speech and Hearing Sciences with a minor in Public Health. I plan to get my Master's Degree to become a Speech-Language Pathologist with the hopes of working with brain injury survivors. In my free time, I enjoy a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, backpacking, paddleboarding, and more!
I am a first year grad student at Portland State University and a future bilingual speech-language pathologist. My clinical and research interests include fluency disorders, working with bilingual populations, and telepractice. I am also especially fond of phonetics! In my free time, I love exploring the outdoors, creative projects, playing the ukulele, snuggling my kitty, and culinary adventures.
My passion for language has led me to an interest in speech language pathology with a focus in partnering with bilingual children and families. In my free time, I find myself reading fiction in the realm of magical realism, figure drawing, playing the occasional videogame, and going on lots of adventures with my four year old son, Scout.
I am interested in going into Speech Language Pathology. As I take more classes in the SPHR department, I am exploring which areas of the field are most interesting to me because currently I'm interested in everything! My favorite things to do in my free time are hanging out with my niece and nephew, watching movies, and making arts and crafts!
We believe in creating an equitable environment to further Speech and Hearing Science Students professional learning on becoming Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists
