Assistant Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders

Dr. Perrine joined the Baylor faculty in 2018. 


  • B.S., Bowling Green University (2012)
  • M.S., Bowling Green University (2014)
  • Ph.D.,  Bowling Green University (2018)

Academic Interests and Research

Dr. Perrine has taught courses in Anatomy and Physiology and Clinical Instrumentation. She will be teaching courses in areas such as Voice Disorders and Cleft Lip and Palate.

Dr.  Perrine conducts research in the area of voice physiology using measures of vocal aerodynamic (the air pressures and air flows) and vocal acoustics. Her recent research has involved examining endocrine and voice production measures in individuals under stress. In addition, she is examining the influence of cheerleading on vocal fold aerodynamic and perceptual voice measures.
