Kate graduated with her Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders from the
University of Texas at Dallas in August of 2018, after having earned her Bachelor of Science
Degree in Neuroscience from Brigham Young University.
During her graduate studies, Kate worked with a variety of clients of various ages and language disorders. These included children with autism, articulation and phonological disorders, languages disorders, and childhood apraxia of speech, as well as with adults with stroke, TBI, and dementia.
Kate has a passion for working with clients of all ages to optimize their abilities to communicate with those around them. She particularly enjoys working on developing language with children who are nonverbal or minimally verbal, enhancing social skills, and treating childhood apraxia of speech. She loves to develop relationships with her clients and see her client’s progress in their ability to communicate. Kate believes in celebrating the small successes and focusing on strengths, and then using these strengths to build the areas of weakness. This helps her to have a very positive approach to therapy with her clients.
Kate loves animals and has three rescue animals who she adores: a dog, a cat, and a bunny.
She is also passionate about music and loves to sing and play her cello. She enjoys drawing and painting. Kate is an aspiring author and is currently writing her first novel.
