Course Information/Teaching

I strive to enhance my course content and pedagogical knowledge and to provide my students with high quality preparation for careers in communication sciences and disorders.  My teaching goals are to strengthen our students’ knowledge on evidence-based practice in neurogenic communication disorders and directly apply the knowledge into clinical service delivery with high professional expectations.

I work as a clinical supervisor in speech therapy. My student clinicians learn to conduct client-centered individual and group therapy sessions to older adults with a variety of neurogenic communication disorders. Our clients continue to inspire us!
