“I use her techniques and it truly works. No matter what exercise I am doing, there is always a way to improve the way I am breathing and that is by doing Liz's exercises. The best thing is now I am not afraid to work hard on a hot day in August.” - Claire Prosperi, age 18, High School Softball
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.
