Provider Expertise

Clinical Interest for Patients

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 for 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.

Research Interests for Patients

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.
