Areas of Specialty
Lisa specializes in working with adults and children to improve high-level cognitive-communicative deficits following concussion. She also has been honored to provide gender-affirming voice care for those who want their voice to reflect their true gender. She loves working with families of “late-talkers” to develop their child’s nonverbal play and communication so they can grow the foundational skills required for communication.
Lisa’s areas of interest include cognitive-communication, accent modification, dysarthria, aphasia, apraxia, voice disorders, swallowing disorders, stuttering, speech-sound disorders/phonological disorders, and literacy.
Lisa has been trained in SPEAK OUT! ® through the Parkinson’s Voice Project to treat patients with voice and speech difficulties associated with Parkinson’s Disease.
In her spare time, Lisa loves sourdough baking, stand-up paddleboarding with her dog, Theo, hiking, and cross-country skiing.
