About Instrumental SLP


A Dedication to Patient Care

Instrumental SLP was born out of a true necessity for improved patient care. I have worked in a variety of settings for the past 7 years and I began to recognize the existing gaps in care.  I naturally wanted to fill in the missing pieces to help my patients.

I know how important it is that patients continue to receive ongoing speech therapy and have access to instrumental swallow assessments.  However, it can be difficult, if not impossible at times, for patients to travel out of their homes for speech therapy or to go to hospitals for outpatient swallow studies. When I searched for more accessible speech services and realized that there were none in my area, I decided to do it myself.

I am dedicated to improving patient care and increasing access to these vital services by removing barriers and increasing convenience.  I provide in-home outpatient speech therapy and mobile swallow study services.
