To implement what Keri believes, her life-long passion is continual enhancement of her own communication, as well as her clients.

Keri attends Toastmasters public speaking, writing and improv speaking classes so she can empathize with her clients desire to communicate for a purpose but not succeed. Enhanced understanding inspires Keri to support clients through their courageous journey. Celebrating high points and standing by through mistakes and breakdowns. To offer feedback viewed as encouragement. And to personalize treatment for client’s functional goals.

Throughout her 20-year speech-language pathology career, Keri has extended her education from experts and professionals on parent training for speech and language, apraxia (motor speech), social communication, phonological processing, reading comprehension, language content, writing, speaking confidence, public speaking, and accent modification.

Keri is that person who’s always tuned in to a webinar or observing how people communicate in natural settings. She doesn’t quit learning a technique until she can break it down for kids to use in ways they enjoy. Because nothing accelerates progress better than kids who develop a love for speaking, writing, reading and communicating.

hen parents are worried about delays and struggles, affirmations their child can initiate conversation, catch onto a turn-taking game or persevere to master a speech movement –shines possibilities of their gifts. Reminders that they’re more capable and incredible than they realize.

Keri looks forward to collaborating with a team of specialists so your child can thrive.
