As the owner and therapist of Compass Pediatric Feeding and Lactation Services, I have had the honor of working in this amazing field for many years. I obtained my Masters of Science in 2008 and have been a clinically-certified Speech-Language Pathologist ever since. Throughout my career I have specialized in early language development and feeding issues. I have spent my entire career working with medical specialists and teams to ensure my patients and families are receiving comprehensive, multi-disciplinary care.
After several years of working with breast-fed patients, I obtained my Lactation Counselor Certificate to provide a wider spectrum of support for breast-feeding moms and children.
My work has always focused on the relationship with eating and family. It is important for parents to feel empowered to engage with their children. It is my goal to reduce stressful situations while ensuring the family and child have fun. I utilize a combination hands-on and coaching style in my therapy practice. Working in the home has taught me the importance of setting realistic goals and expectations based on the family’s resources, mealtime environment, and daily routines.
I look forward to working with you and you child!! If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask! I am here for you and your family.
