I have been a speech/language pathologist for over 30 years and have had certification in accent reduction since 2016. In addition to providing services to private clients in accent modification, I have worked full time over 10 years with students in the public schools (10 years in the brick and mortar schools and one year providing online services) and over 20 years in healthcare, including extensive experience with improving speech intelligibility through increased accuracy of speech production and use of the voice. I love working with all ages from young children throughout adulthood!
I have a strong personal interest in learning languages, especially Spanish and Portuguese, but love the variety of all languages and cultures (have also studied Gaelic and Italian). In addition, I have enjoyed participating with many English language learners in various language exchanges on Skype and Whatsapp since 2015. Other interests include cooking, fitness and health, spirituality, and reading books to expand my knowledge.
