I am excited to join the Hot Springs School District as the new Speech Language Pathologist on campus. My family and I moved to South Dakota from the San Antonio, TX area in November 2020. I graduated from Southwest Texas State University in 2001 with my Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders and graduated from The University of Houston in 2003 with a Master of Arts in Communication Disorders. I have primarily worked within the public school system and have provided Speech Therapy to students from pre-K through post-high school. I truly enjoy working with all ages and abilities and helping my students to communicate more successfully. Effective communication skills are of the utmost importance for all individuals in all aspects of life.
