Welcome to the Speech Department! 

 Good communication skills are essential in life.  

Let's aim for good speech!


I have been employed by the Barnegat Township School District since 1992.  For the first 16 years of my career, I worked at the Cecil S. Collins School and was then transferred to the Joseph T. Donahue Elementary School when it was built in 2008.  Additionally, I have two years experience working at the Russell O. Brackman Middle School.  My undergraduate studies were conducted at Stockton University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology.  My graduate studies were conducted at Kean University where I received my Masters Degree in Speech Pathology as well as my Supervisor's Certificate under Public Education Administration.  I have much experience in remediating and improving speech intelligibility (articulation), apraxia of speech, language disorders, auditory processing, fluency (stuttering) and pragmatics.  I am licensed as a Speech Language Specialist as well as a Speech Language Pathologist.  I truly love my job and look forward towards working with all of my students and improving their speech and language goals each week.
