I received my Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) in March of this year. The excitement that overcame me when I received this in the mail was pure joy! The years of hard work and dedication from receiving my Bachelor's degree and Master's degree to my Clinical Fellowship Year (CFY) has been a journey well worth it! Personally I had many obstacles along the way and they helped to make me the person I am today and I am still growing each day. I want to thank each of you for taking the time to journey with me on this incredible experience that has developed and shaped my skills. I hope that through sharing resources with each of you that you will share with others. I feel so blessed to be in a career that I absolutely love! I am here to stay and to continue sharing resources.
