Speech-Language Pathology

Hi, I’m Teresa!  I was introduced to the field of speech pathology as a teenager while volunteering as a therapy aide and have been pursuing the field ever since.  I have been privileged to work with individuals across the lifespan, from building foundation speech and language skills in children (0-3 years old) to implementing compensatory language strategies for adults who have suffered from strokes (50-80 years old).  Serving as a graduate student clinician for Tiny Voice Therapy Services allowed me to discover and grow in knowledge and passion for the world of Early Intervention.  I graduated with my Masters degree in speech language pathology in May 2019 and am currently working for the Rockford Public School district, but it is also my great desire to serve and support families in their homes.
