Rachel earned her bachelor of science degree in speech language and hearing sciences from Purdue University. She earned her master of science degree in speech-language pathology from Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame in Indiana. She knew she wanted a rewarding career working with kiddos, so she followed her passion to become a speech therapist in a pediatric setting. Rachel is a kid at heart, so working in pediatrics was a natural calling! She has previous professional pediatric outpatient experience and Birth-to-Three. Rachel is passionate about working with children of all abilities to help reach their full potential. She loves using a play-based approach while targeting the child’s goals to make therapy fun, yet productive! Rachel enjoys building a rapport with not only the child, but with their family as well. She wants the family to feel included to create a family-centered therapy journey. In her free time, Rachel enjoys spending time on lakes in the summer, cheering on the Packers, going on long walks, trying new restaurants, and spending time with family and friends.
