Hi! I am a pediatric speech language pathologist and mom of two.
I believe that creating days for our children filled with love and language doesn’t have to be complicated.
I believe in acknowledging the heavy load of caregivers, and empowering them without piling on to the feelings of guilt and overwhelm.
I believe everything is better (and more fun) with music, and that the best learning always comes through play.
I have created Happy Talk Song and Sign Curriculum to help you simply and confidently bring more joy and learning to children's days.
