Welcome to my website where I share my passion for neonatal/pediatric swallowing and feeding!

Visit often to hear about  current research that impacts our delivery of care, join me for problem-solve patients from neonates to school-aged children, and for answers to your questions along the way. And to check my schedule.

My seminars reflect my passion for life-long collaborative learning that is grounded in family-centered care. Each seminar is designed to bring you the current evidence-base, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment approaches, and networking with other passionate skilled professionals. My goal is to provide you with meaningful and memorable interactions with respected instructors who are leaders in the field regarding challenging patients and professional practice issues. Take a look at my  2022 seminar schedule for onsite and live webinar opportunities.

Thank you for your interest in learning along with me. I am committed to providing exceptional opportunities to do so, both in person and virtually.  I recently held a live webinar on All Things NICU Feeding and had such a great response; new sessions are being offered. Stay tuned for more live webinar opportunities! If you sign up for my blog on any page of my website, you will receive an automatic notification when new webinars launch and when registration for on site 2022 seminars opens.

I hope our paths cross down the road. I look forward to meeting you!
