Ally earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Through her internships, she gained extensive experience with pediatrics across hospital, outpatient, school, and private clinic settings. Ally loves working with the pediatric population to achieve their speech, language, and communication goals. In addition, Ally is passionate about pediatric feeding and swallowing treatment to help children achieve the safest and most enjoyment of food possible! She loves to create environments full of fun, laughter, and play where children can thrive while working toward their goals. She is so excited to begin her professional career here at CI! In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, loving on other people’s animals (since she doesn’t have her own), and taking spontaneous trips to try new things – like climbing at The Red.
