I am a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist with a Master of Education in Communication Disorders from the University of Virginia. As an SLP, I have extensive knowledge of speech sound production and voice and resonance, as well as considerable experience training someone for more effective articulatory precision. I have my Certificate of Clinical Competence through the American Speech and Hearing Association, am licensed in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, and am a certified Rupp-Method trainer for accent modification. In my most recent job, I have been providing clinical services, business communication coaching and pronunciation coaching services for a speech therapy telepractice company. I started my business, The Speech Effect LLC, in 2022, and have quickly been growing to support both individuals seeking self-improvement skills, as well as corporations looking to invest in their employees by elevating their communication skills. For companies, our mission is to improve communicative inefficiencies across the workplace in order to foster professional growth and better business results. In my personal life, I love spending time with my husband, toddler, and newborn. I enjoy reading, hiking, biking, and spending as much time as possible outdoors!
I work with individuals who are looking to reduce their anxiety around public speaking, those who want to learn to adjust their accent in accordance with Standard American English rules, as well as those looking to improve their delivery of their message, content organization, vocal dynamics, or pragmatics. I provide 1:1 individual, remote sessions via Zoom, and use functional resources to promote optimal generalization of skills.
