Greetings! I have been a speech and language pathologist for 31 years. Most of my career has been in the outpatient setting (Genesis Medical Center) where I focus my practice on adults with neurological speech, language, and cognitive deficits – such as stroke, traumatic brain injury, concussion, brain tumor, and other progressive neurological diseases. I see patients in individual treatment sessions and work in conjunction with our day treatment program (Genesis LIFT program) for those patients whose goals include return to school, work, and volunteer status. Patients with aphasia, primary progressive aphasia, apraxia of speech, cognitive-linguistic impairment, dysarthria, and dysphagia (swallowing disorder) make up my primary caseload. I am a long standing member of ASHA , am licensed in the state of Iowa, and have certifications in Brain Injury (CBIS) and Lee Silverman Voice Therapy – Loud. At Genesis Medical Center, we accept private insurance, Medicare, and Medicaid. Feel free to contact me at our outpatient location – Genesis Physical Therapy and Wellness. We are located in Bettendorf, Iowa.
