Meet Caitlin

Caitlin’s goal is to help the pediatric population improve their feeding, swallowing, and communication goals. She is a huge foodie and believes everyone has the right to enjoy a meal! 

She received her Master of Art degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Northern Illinois University in 2021. Caitlin has a diverse experience with children with differing diagnoses developing individualized speech, language and cognitive treatment plans

Every child is unique, so building a strong relationship is her first goal to provide effective therapy. This helps Caitlin to learn and build off of their strengths and identify areas for improvement to meet his/her needs. Nothing brings Caitlin more joy than watching a child’s language grow, seeing the child try new foods, and seeing the pride and confidence that comes with it!!
