I was excited to join the College of Education faculty 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, dysphagia (swallowing 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. My teaching incorporates technology, active learning, and cognitive supports to build and reinforce brain connections. 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 master’s degree in speech-language pathology at Emerson College in Boston, MA in 1999, and my PhD in speech-language pathology in 2008 at the University of Oregon (Eugene, OR). In my spare time, I love to bake, spend time with my two black cats and black lab, garden, and explore "easy" hiking trails in the local area with my partner.
