I have over 25 years practicing as a speech language pathologist in various settings including the private sector, hospitals, and public schools. I have taught undergraduate and graduate students majoring in communications disorders and teacher education at colleges and universities. I joined the Baylor adjunct online faculty in May 2020.

I have two children: Bryce who is a senior at Georgia State University, and a daughter named Colby, who attends Albany State University in Georgia. I am passionate about facilitating the learning journey for the rising speech language pathologists who will advocate and serve individuals with communication disorders. My other passions are working with culturally and linguistically diverse populations, volunteering with youth organizations, participating in community health fairs, traveling, participating in church activities, and Zumba! My occupation is a calling initiated by God. It’s more than a job, but a way to bless others.


Academic Interests and Research:

My interests are in the areas of Multicultural Education, Language Development, and Speech Sound Disorders. My research involved looking at the preparedness of preservice teachers to instruct culturally and linguistically diverse populations. I would like to extend this research to the preparedness of preservice speech language pathologists.
