My research mission is to ensure that children with language and literacy disorders access early, effective intervention. I earned my BS in Psychology from Georgia Tech in 2011, my MS in Speech-Language Pathology from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 2013, and my PhD in Hearing and Speech Sciences from Vanderbilt University in 2019. I am a certified, licensed speech-language pathologist and a certified structured literacy / dyslexia interventionist.
