I am a student at Central Michigan University, class of 2014, majoring in Communication Disorders and will be the Vice President of the Speech Language and Hearing Club during the 2013-14 academic year. I intend to pursue my Master's Degree in Speech- Language Pathology. I have recently participated in the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) at University of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign doing graduate level research under the guidance of Dr. Laura DeThorne. I am a recipient of the SROP Outstanding Young Researcher Award. My research interest include how Autism Spectrum Disorders impacts speech, language, and social abilities in children. I am also interested in stuttering, cultural language differences, aphasia and augmentative & alternative communication (AAC).
