About (Summary)

I am a graduate student currently attending Emerson College through the Speech@Emerson online Communication Disorders program. My previous work experiences include the medical laboratory where I have spent 12 years as a microbiologist as well as prior experiences working in nephrology research, and veterinary clinical settings during my undergraduate career. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University with a degree in Biomedical Sciences, and I achieved an American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) certification as a Technologist in Microbiology, after my post-baccalaureate education at the Tarleton State University school for Medical Laboratory Sciences and Public Health. I am currently involved in the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA), American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA) Special Interest Groups for Cultural and Linguistic Diversity, SIG 14, Global Issues in Communication Sciences and Related Disorders, SIG 17, Neurogenic Communication Disorders, SIG 02, and Speech Science, SIG 19, National Black Association for Speech-Language and Hearing (NBASLH), Bilingual Language and Literacy Investigative and Networking Group (BLLING), and Texas Speech Language Hearing Association (TSHA). I am also a Speech@Emerson Student Ambassador, speaking to incoming students as well as assisting classmates who are in an earlier phase of the program. I volunteer with Travel & Give, which is an organization providing allied health services to schools in Haiti and Kenya through distance consultation and in person services in occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech language pathology and associated therapeutic disciplines. My career goal is to become a multilingual Speech-Language Pathologist and use evidence-based principles to enhance the quality of life or academic potential for individuals of all cultures with communication disorders.
