My Story

I am thrilled to welcome you to The Jersey Speech Lab! I worked in NYC as a speech language pathologist and voice specialist for over 16 years. I began in musical theater and went on to become a leading clinician, manager, lecturer, and advocate for patients and clients with a wide range of communication disorders and differences.

Founder & Owner

I received my bachelors degree in Theater from Northwestern University, with a specialization in Musical Theater, and earned my masters degree in Speech Language Pathology from Teachers College, Columbia University. Prior appointments have included serving as the Assistant Director of the Voice and Swallowing Institute at Columbia University Medical Center, Director of Speech Pathology at The New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai, and Voice Specialist at Long Island Jewish Medical Center (Northwell). I was honored to work side by side with laryngologist, Dr. Michael Pitman, for over 12 years. I have also lectured both nationally and internationally, have been published in peer-reviewed journals, and have contributed to multiple textbooks. I am a member of The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), The Voice Foundation, and am an LSVT-LOUD certified clinician. I now spend some time at The Eugen Grabscheid Voice and Swallowing Center of Mount Sinai Hospital with laryngologist, Dr. Mark Courey, and enjoy interdisciplinary collaboration in the Department of Otolaryngology.

I'm also a mom to two little boys, class parent at the South Mountain YMCA, and I'm proud to call Maplewood, NJ, home.
