Momma in the Making

A little over one year ago, my husband and I welcomed our daughter into the world. Of course, we fell in love instantly! Ever since, she has rocked our world. I went from being a working professional speech language pathologist to a stay at home mom overnight. Taking care of a baby is no joke – and my daughter is a mighty force. Once I returned to work, my perspective of my students, fellow co-workers, and my approach to therapy changed for the better. As a parent, I now see each student as someone’s child, sibling, and grandchild. I see co-workers as fellow parents. Each person doing their best to meet the needs of family. Of course, I knew this to be true before I became a momma, but this emotion is something I hadn’t experienced until I became a momma. 

During my time as a speech language pathologist, I have worked in many settings. Serving children in high and low income households, young and old, in both private and public settings. With each family I meet there is a common denominator – parents are genuinely looking for ways to implement speech skills at home! Often, parents are not equipped with the information and resources they need to be successful and support their kids. I am here to tell you that you CAN be successful at home. It does not require spending vast amounts of money.  Mommas, you can provide the home carryover for speech and language development that your child needs while doing everyday tasks. Really, it’s that simple. Follow my blog to learn more tips, tricks, and information to help you at home.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. I am a Christian, wife, mom, and speech language pathologist. I started this site out of a desire bridge the gap between a traditional therapy setting and the home setting. Parents are the most powerful influencers in a child's developement! My goal is to enable YOU to meet your childs speech needs while sharing glimpses of my life along the way.

    This is such an awesome way to help families!! Having taught for 35 years I know that carryover to home can be tough for parents. I’m sure this extra support will help parents and other care givers. With strategies and encouragement, it will make helping their child manageable and fun. So proud of you!!!
