- What made you get into this profession?
I love helping children and making a difference. I love the problem solving aspect of the field and that each day is different.
- What school did you go to?
University at Buffalo for undergrad and Adelphi University for masters.
Yes. Time management is key so that you don’t have to bring too much work home. Planners, Post-Its, reminder apps, whatever it may be to keep track of deadlines.
- Dog, cat, or other? Please feel free to share pets and names.
Animal free here.
- One mistake (or more) you made as a newbie speechie.
Not asking for help and thinking I knew all the answers.
- One tip on collaborating with other professionals or parents.
Many professionals need that push or encouragement to collaborate. Parents can be the same way. Show them the benefits, start the conversation.
- One goal (professional or personal).
To bring healthier lunches to work 🙂
- Product you are most proud of.
Articulation Stories: check it our HERE.
- Why you decided to be an entrepreneur and make the products that you do.
I love being creative and trying to find fun ways to meet my students’ needs. I started creating my own materials back in graduate school. I realized that I could make them digital and share them with SLPs around the world to help make their lives easier.
- Please give a snippet of the products/services that you produce .
On my blog I share quick tips and tricks for busy SLPs. In my TpT store, you can find a wide variety of products from quick activities that don’t take long to prepare or comprehensive activities that can be used month after month to work on goals. I love to incorporate fun into my therapy sessions and my products and blog reflects that.
Make sure to check her out on all the social media sites…

Learn tips and tricks for coming up with consistent content, standing out from the crowd, blogging on the go, and time management hacks!
This pack contains TONS of graphic organizers for skill such as vocabulary, auditory comprehension, sequencing, and more! This pack is a great tool for SLPs to teach these skills, but it can also be used in the classroom, ESL, or with reading specialists. Activities to teach how to use these graphic organizers are provided, as well as blank organizers for use with your own vocabulary/stories. Generic themes, backgrounds, and vocabulary are used. I targeted common categories and vocabulary.
Many kids need assistance with social skills, not just those in speech therapy. These social skills activities cover a plethora of themes, so that you can use them any time of the year, and they target several different goals. Get your students talking and interacting with these no prep activities!
