I have three degrees in the field of speech pathology and audiology. I received my B.S. from Kent State University, my M.A. from the University of Connecticut, and my PhD from Purdue. Prior to returning for my Ph.D., I worked as a Speech-Language Pathologist for the Cleveland Public Schools, the University of Iowa Hospitals, and the St. Paul Public Schools. My interest has always been in the area of language acquisition and language disorders in children. After completing my Ph.D., I worked at the University of Illinois with faculty across a number of departments and disciplines during which time we developed an early intervention transdisciplinary model for educating graduate students to work with children 0- 3. While at Kent I have been able to continue this area of interest through work with the Family Child Learning Center (FCLC) and with the Early Childhood, Early Childhood Special Education, and School Psychology programs here on campus. Research interests include comprehension strategies, vocabulary development, and phonological awareness skills in young children and the interaction of language development and literacy. Most recently I have been involved in the development of model intervention programs in the areas of phonological awareness and oral/written language skills. I am active in ASHA, CEC, OSLHA, and OSSPEAC.
