Welcome to my website where I share my passion for neonatal/pediatric swallowing and feeding and lifelong learning.

Registration for my seminars is closed at this time. Sign up for my blog on any page of my website to receive a notification when my 2023 schedule is finalized.

Visit often to hear about current research that impacts our delivery of care, state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment approaches, problem-solving complex patients from neonates to school-aged children, and for answers to your questions along the way. Access my publications by clicking here.

My goal is to provide you with learning that informs your practice, and meaningful and memorable interactions, both live and virtual, with highly respected instructors who are leaders in the field regarding challenging patients and professional practice issues.

Whether you are looking for a solid foundation in neonatal/pediatric swallowing and feeding, or for advanced clinical learning opportunities, my seminars have been designed with you in mind.

It has been wonderful in 2022 seeing you in person and getting back to “sidebar” conversations during breaks, talking with attendees informally to get their pulse on a topic and the course thus far, and those one-on-one exchanges that help us reflect and continue the dialogue over lunch break. And making lasting connections. See you soon!
