I was excited to join the College of Education faculty as an associate professor in the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders in Fall 2012. I am passionate about teaching and clinical practice in the area of adult medical speech-language pathology. With expertise in cognitive rehabilitation, evidence-based practices, motor speech disorders, and scholarship of teaching and learning, my scholarship advances best practices for adults with acquired brain injury. I am passionate about interprofessional practice, collaboration, and community service. My research focuses on assistive technologies for cognition to support memory performance, motivation, and self-efficacy. I am also currently investigating the potential efficacy of computerized cognitive training for adults with acquired brain injury. With many local and national connections, I am excited to share my experience, passion, and scholarship with students and colleagues at Pacific University. I completed my doctoral work in 2008 at the University of Oregon. In my spare time, I love to bake cakes, spend time with my two black cats and black lab puppy, garden, and explore "easy" hiking trails in the local area with my partner.
