I love helping people to speak and understand so they can live the life they love. I specialize in post-stroke communication disorders including Aphasia, and social communication difficulties (often related to Autism Spectrum Disorders) in both adults and children. I am passionate about supporting parents, partners, siblings, peers, professionals – anyone else who supports people with communication challenges. I run Connect & Communicate groups for children and teens to help them communicate socially, so they can connect with friends and family.
Fluent in English and French (and I try hard in lots of other languages!), I worked for the Franco-Manitoban School Division for 16 years, which contributed to my extensive experience working with bilingual clients.
I am registered with the College of Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists of Manitoba and certified by Speech and Audiology Canada.
