Director of Speech Department
Erin graduated magna cum laude with a Master of Science in speech language pathology from EIU in 1998. She has been working with children and families for over 20 years in hospital, outpatient and home settings. Working with pediatrics has always been a great joy for her, and she has been working exclusively with the pediatric population since joining the Shine Therapy Services team in March 2013. She was promoted to the Director of Speech in May 2019. Erin works carefully to foster trusting and productive relationships with the families, other therapists and physicians. She is passionate about providing families with the knowledge and resources to improve their child’s skills. Erin has over 10 years credentialed as an EI therapist and is an Early Intervention Evaluator. She has experience with pediatric speech, language and feeding disorders. She has spent many years growing her knowledge base in the area of motor speech disorders and finds working with these disorders challenging, but very rewarding. Erin married her long time sweetheart Ben, in April 2021, and they have a teenage son and a teenage daughter. She loves big dogs and counts her own three as extensions of her family. In her spare time, Erin spends as much time as possible logging miles in the swimming pool or spending time with her family, two legged and four.
