Experience

I have been an Independent Certified Instructor of Baby Signs® programs since 2014 and have been providing classes in the WNY area since 2016.

As an SLP, I incorporated the use of manual sign-language into many of my therapy sessions. Many of the schools I worked in provided services to children with developmental disabilities and Autism. I have witnessed first hand the benefits of giving a voice to those who do not speak but can learn basic signs to communicate their needs and wants.

Personal Life

I grew up in Western New York (Go Bills!) but now call North Carolina home. My husband and I have been married for well over a decade and we are blessed with two children at home that always keep me on my toes.

 

We have used the Baby Signs® Program at our house for both of our kiddos and have had a blast watching the way each of our children's language skills have developed. We continue to see the benefits from teaching signs early on as our oldest is now kindergarten age.
