Clinical Interests
My interests are restoring speech, swallowing, and alaryngeal voice to patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancer.

Care Philosophy
I strive to provide the best care for my patients; to return them to as normal speech and swallow as possible following treatment for head and neck cancer.

Personal Interests
I love to be outdoors, whether it be running or swimming with my two young daughters, or skiing with my husband. I also love to travel, and my favorite spot is the beach.
