About me
I wear a few different hats. I'm a PhD candidate in Linguistics at UC San Diego, a course facilitator for Emerson College's online program, Speech@Emerson, creator of, and a voice specialized speech-language pathologist in private practice. My research interests are in phonetics (the study of speech sounds), voice quality, and voice disorders. I also enjoy teaching and mentoring undergraduate students.

Outside of my life as an academic and clinician, I enjoy playing guitar, making coffee, rock climbing, and being out in nature.
