When did you start with DotCom Therapy? May 2016
What do you love about working for DotCom Therapy?
Everything! I love that I am able to provide quality services to students who may otherwise not have access. As an employee, I feel valued and respected. The executive team at DotCom Therapy has encouraged me to pursue my areas of interest and are always willing to provide extra support when needed. As a mother, I am thankful for having extra time with my children. The schedule is flexible and I am able to be in the moment with my family.
Where are you from?
I am from Nixa, Missouri. My husband and I moved to this area, from southeast Missouri, a little over 15 years ago. We love the Ozarks and have found it to be a great place to raise our family.
Where are you licensed?
MO, HI, OH, VA, TN
What are your special interests or areas of expertise?
I have primarily worked with school-age children, with the focus being on language and sound system disorders. Growing up in a rural farming community, I have first-hand experience with poverty. It is of great interest to me how poverty impacts a child's speech and language development, and how deficits in these areas affect literacy skills.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, watching old movies, and singing.
