About Me

As a breast cancer survivor, health is extremely important to me. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 45. I had always taken excellent care of myself, and I was devastated to learn that I was not well. I was very fortunate to have recovered, and when I did, I began to seek out healthier choices for myself. I was fortunate to have found Ariix, a health and wellness company with stellar products and extremely high ideals. With my restored health, I can now bring my renewed energies to my speech and language clients and to develop potential in others.

I have been a pediatric speech therapist for 28 years. I have enjoyed bringing effective communication out of my students. I can support a range of communication disorders. However, my passion is helping non-verbal individuals become proficient at communication through integrated devices. I currently work full-time in a public school. I also see private clients after school. I love motivating my students: being able to communicate is extremely important! I enjoy working with families and teachers to bring out the highest level of communication in each of my students, regardless of how they initially present. I am 100% certain that each student that sits in my speech sessions will be able to reach their highest level of communication whether they are verbal or nonverbal.

I have provided speech therapy for public school students as well as private clients. In my capacity as Director of the Speech and Language, Sensory Integration Program at the Jeannetta D. Burpee Institute, I have focused on early intervention for the very young (aged three to five), as well as preschool, school-age, middle school and high school students. I have extensive experience with home-based and center-based therapy. I have developed Individual Educational Plans and Individual Family Service Plans, and I have performed home-based evaluations as part of an assessment team. I have working knowledge of a wide variety of techniques.

Concurrently, I am developing a start-up business, marketing Ariix products. I love the company and I love their products. I am newly passionate about health and wellness, and I am grateful for the opportunity to share my fortune. We women, in particular, often put ourselves last, and it is important that we learn to take care of ourselves first, in order to be healthy enough to take care of everyone else in our lives and fulfill our responsibilities. My network marketing business gives me the opportunity to meet and talk to people and more importantly, to help them live a healthier life.

I have two adult sons who are the light of my life, and I am happily married to my wife of 11 years. I enjoy grocery shopping for my family and introducing them to healthy choices. As a family we love to travel to the large cities in the world.We have been to New York City, Washington DC, London England, Paris France...we also greatly enjoyed Lucerne Switzerland. When I'm not visiting large cities, I enjoy small quaint towns like Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania and beach towns like Rehoboth Beach in Delaware.

Outside of traveling, I enjoy taking long walks with my cockapoos or doing TRX at my local gym. I also enjoy coloring mandalas. In winter, on snowy afternoons, one of my favorite things to do is to curl up with my cat and enjoy a hot cup of tea, while listening to music from Bach to Beyoncé.
