I have provided speech/language therapy services in a variety of settings including hospitals, private clinics, home health agencies, correctional centers, preschools and public schools.
I am a native North Carolinian growing up in the sandhills of North Carolina. While my husband is originally from Havelock, we met in Cary, NC. We have lived in Newport, NC since 1993.
