Kristin realized her passion for working with children while teaching swim lessons in high school. She discovered her love of Speech-Language Pathology during her undergraduate studies, which she completed at the University of New Hampshire. During her graduate studies, which focused on early childhood and language disorders and was also completed at UNH, Kristin worked for two years as a Speech-Language Assistant in the public school system. Also during her graduate studies, Kristin was awarded a grant in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and Assistive Technology, which was funded by the US Department of Education Office of Special Education Programs. Kristin is proud to be an ASHA board certified Speech-Language Pathologist.
She loves working with all children with speech and language difficulties, but has special interests in AAC, fluency, and "social thinking". She has been trained in Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), has completed two case studies under a well-known fluency expert in the state, and uses the foundations of social thinking developed by Michelle Garcia Winner. Kristin has also presented nationally at the American Speech-Language Hearing Association convention on the topic of social communication.
When not working with children, Kristin enjoys spending time with her family, reading, exercising, and watching Boston sports. She also loves downtime with her cat Olive and dog Charlie.email@example.com
