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 the last 22 years in hospital, outpatient and home settings. Working with pediatrics is a great joy for her! 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 11 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 Ben, (her boyfriend of 10 years!) in April 2021; she has one teenage son and one teenage step-daughter. She loves big dogs and counts her own three as extensions of her family. In her spare time, Erin enjoys swimming, running, or getting lost in a good book.
