About

Laurel

What was your path to becoming a provider?

I loved language from a young age and watched my mom make a difference as a speech therapist herself. I decided at 18 that I wanted to be one as well! It's been nine years since I graduated with my Master's degree, and I have been fortunate enough to work with 11 month olds, 105 year olds, and everything in between!

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

There isn't a one size fits all approach to learning. I feel that I can aid in a client's learning by respecting their individual wants/needs and thinking creatively and out of the box.

What would you say to someone who is very anxious about learning problems in school?

I would assure them that being anxious is completely valid, but also that there are many tools, tricks, and resources out there to help them bridge those gaps.
