Meet Our Staff

OWNER & SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST

I began a career in marketing straight out of college but decided to return to school a year later to pursue my dream of becoming a speech-language pathologist. I completed my post-baccalaureate work and Master of Science while enrolled in Idaho State University’s online program. I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings, including school districts, so I know how the system works. I currently live in Auburn with my amazing husband, young son, and two rescue dogs. I am a passionate advocate for animal-assisted therapy and recently lost my buddy, Aiden. My many hobbies include playing my ukulele, singing, hiking with my dogs, and computer illustration. I love coffee milkshakes, no matter how cold it is outside.

EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

I am so excited to be working at Circle Creek Therapy with my daughter, Courtni. I love getting to know all of the clients and their families by name, and I cherish the opportunities I have to connect with parents. I currently live in Puyallup with my wonderful husband, who is a teacher, and I have two grown daughters. I am a very proud grandma of my first grandchild, Noah, who I get to see almost every day. My hobbies include my dog, crafting, and spoiling my grandson. I look forward to meeting you.
