Research Interests

My research focuses on improving assessment and treatment of patients with voice and upper airway disorders. I am broadly involved in research examining the pathophysiology of laryngeal diseases, particularly those related to irritation and inflammation. I use translational research techniques to investigate the structure and function of chemical receptors in the larynx and their relationship to chronic cough, paradoxical vocal fold motion, and vocal hyper function.

Clinical Interests
As a speech-language pathologist, my primary clinical interests are assessment and treatment of voice and upper airway disorders. I also provide voice and communication training to folks in the trans community.

Care Philosophy
Our multidisciplinary team of speech-language pathologists and laryngologists strives to provide the best and most up to date care for people with voice and upper airway disorders across the lifespan. I work with patients on an individual level and tailor treatment to their social and occupational needs.

Personal Interests
I find joy in being outdoors, whether skiing, hiking, cycling, or cheering for my kids on the soccer field. When I'm stuck indoors I enjoy reading, puzzles, and cooking.

Volunteer Activities
I am on the Professional Development Committee for Voice and Upper Airway Disorders Special Interest Group at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. I am also a site visitor for ASHA's Council on Academic Accreditation. Beyond service to my profession, I foster kittens for an animal rescue organization and teach English to refugees.
