Kathryn is a certified speech-language pathologist originally from the Chicago area. She graduated with her Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017 and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She has clinical experience in a variety of pediatric settings including preschool and elementary schools, in-home Early Intervention, and outpatient clinics.
Kathryn’s approach to speech-language therapy involves building upon children’s individual strengths to improve their ability to communicate in the everyday routines of their lives. To maximize therapy outcomes, Kathryn continually keeps up to date with the latest research relevant to her clients’ needs. In keeping with evidence-based practice, parents and caregivers play an integral role in the therapeutic process. Kathryn is passionate about neurodiversity and believes that every child deserves to have their voice heard regardless of the manner in which they express it.
When she is not working, Kathryn enjoys taking care of her many houseplants, going on long hikes, taking trips to see family and friends, reading, and trying new vegan recipes.
