About Emily

Emily graduated from the Speech-Language Pathology program at Southern Connecticut State University in 2014. As part of her graduate studies, she was a research intern for Haskins Laboratories, transcribing data for several research projects. Following her CF year in New Haven Public Schools, she returned to Haskins as a Child Language Studies Lab Research Assistant. There she oversaw multiple projects involving ultrasound biofeedback to remediate speech articulation errors. She continues to provide ultrasound biofeedback treatment for residual speech sound errors, apraxia, and accent modification.

She joined the University of New Haven in Spring 2023 as an adjunct instructor and taught the dysphagia course for the Speech Pathology program. Providing care for dysphagia patients is something she's very passionate about. Working with the adult population over the last several years, she's learned a great deal about swallowing disorders, making her an asset to our team. She also enjoys training, educating, and implementing dietary guidelines and recommendations with dietary and nursing staff.

Emily is thrilled to join the University of New Haven School of Health Sciences as a Practitioner in Residence in the Spring of 2024. She enjoys working with the Speech Pathology students and is excited to be a part of such a wonderful team!
