Compassion and caring for the individual needs of my clients

“As a Communicative Disorders Assistant, I am able to work in a supporting capacity with registered Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists in a variety of settings. I am trained to understand the anatomical and physiological aspects of speech, language, and hearing disorders along with the necessary skills for intervention and hearing aid programming.”

  • Communicative Disorders Assistant- Graduate Certificate, Lambton College, 2015
  • Honour Bachelor of Arts, Speech and Language Sciences, Brock University, 2014

Learning the true meaning of continuing education
“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”-Malcolm X

  • After working in the customer service industry throughout high school and university, I decided to pursue a career that encompassed my passion for people. During my time at Brock I expanded my education to learning sign language and began to teach for the University. This gave me a great understanding for the deaf culture as I attended multiple workshops within the deaf community and began to understand the importance of all aspects of language. This assisted my decision to take the Communicative Disorders Assistant program. My education in speech and language and my involvement in the deaf community mesh well with the aspects of hearing loss and communication barriers.

Committed to professional practice
“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see”. -Mark Twain

  • Every individual has their own unique stories and their own hobbies. Some individuals need to hear “four” at the golf course, some want to hear the farm talk at their local coffee shop, while others enjoy listening to the birds on a nice spring morning, it is my goal to make sure I take the time with each person to make sure their hearing needs meet their life activities.
