My mission is to provide personalized, high quality care.  My passion is helping individuals achieve optimal speech, voice and breathing function.  After completing my academic work, I was on the faculty of the Northwestern University Medical School working at Northwestern Memorial Hospital seeing inpatients and outpatients with speech, language, voice, swallowing and cognitive disorders.  I participated in dysphagia research, graduate student supervision and dysphagia workshops for practicing SLPs.  After leaving Northwestern, I worked at a number of area hospitals and began my private practice.  From 2004  to 2014 my practice included work in the office of Children's Asthma Respiratory and Exercise Specialists.  

I earned a Bachelor of Science in Speech at Northwestern University and a Master of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders - Speech-Language Pathology, also from Northwestern University.  I am past president of the Chicago Audiology-Speech-Language Association and hold professional memberships in the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Illinois Speech-Language-Hearing Association, the Buteyko Breathing Educators Association and the National Guild of Hypnotists.  I am a Fellow of Buteyko Professionals International.  In my free time I enjoy reading, cooking, running, swimming, biking, riding horses, and practicing yoga and Pilates - preferably all with my husband and three children.
