Juliette received her bachelor’s degree in History from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After graduating, she spent two years as a bilingual history teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. Though she loved teaching, she knew she was passionate about language development, processing, and language alteration after injury and disease. Therefore, she decided to pursue a degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Juliette received her master’s degree from Elmhurst College. During her graduate training, she gained experience working with bilingual and monolingual children in medical, private, and public school settings, including Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, GiGi’s Playhouse, and Horsefeathers Therapeutic Riding. Juliette is passionate about pediatric feeding and swallowing, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), early and school-age language development, bilingual language therapy, and social language. Since joining CI, Juliette has become trained in the Sequential Oral Sensory Approach to Feeding (SOS) and the Get Permission Approach to Mealtime Challenges. She uses what she learned from these trainings to empower families with strategies to help children develop a lifelong positive relationship with food. In her free time, you will find Juliette spending time outside with her loved ones, creating art, traveling, and cooking/exploring new food. Juliette is honored to be a member of the CI Pediatric Therapy team!
