Describe your role at Sound.

Since I have just recently graduated with my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from UMass Amherst, I will be completing my Clinical Fellowship Year at Sound in order to become a fully certified speech-language pathologist. I look forward to building my own caseload and evaluating/treating a variety of individuals who are seeking speech and language therapy at the practice!

Describe yourself in 3 words.

Thoughtful, hardworking, and funny!

What’s your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part about being a speech-language pathologist is seeing my client's hard work pay off as they achieve their treatment goals both in and outside the therapy room! I also love to continuously highlight and celebrate progress in each and every treatment session!

What led you to working at Sound?

When looking for private practices in the area to complete my clinical fellowship, I wanted to be a part of a team that was going to be supportive of my clinical goals as well as take a genuine interest in what I bring to the table. Throughout the interview process, I could almost immediately sense the team-oriented culture at the practice as well as the passion each and every clinician has for their clients and the practice as a whole! I felt immediately welcomed to the team and am so grateful to continue developing my clinical skills surrounded by such incredibly talented and inspiring women!

What’s something about you that not many people know?

I played the violin for 11 years growing up (but was never that good!)

What is one of the things you would put on your “bucket” list.

My dream would be to go to Bora Bora in the French Polynesian islands for vacation!

Where are we most likely to find you when not at work?

Going for a run outside, exploring the city, or binge watching Netflix on my couch!

Before working at Sound what was the most unusual or crazy job you had?

Unfortunately I don't think any of the jobs I've had were crazy or unusual, but I worked as a cashier at Target briefly as well as a camp counselor!

Anything else fun to share?

I studied abroad in Florence, Italy in college and visited over 10 European countries!
