Julie graduated with her Masters in Speech Pathology from Grand Valley State University. Her love of working with children with communication disorders began in middle school when she first volunteered with an adaptive sports non-profit organization, Youth Challenge.

Prior to moving to California, she worked in a pediatric outpatient clinic in Michigan, where she assessed and treated children with autism spectrum disorder and a variety of rare genetic disorders, such as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, Mowat-Wilson syndrome, and Angelman syndrome.

Julie is a Hanen Certified Speech-Language Pathologist and strives to educate family members on how to follow the child’s lead. She enjoys incorporating siblings and peers into a child’s therapy session to make the approach to therapy as fun and naturalistic as possible.

When Julie is not in the homes of her patients, she enjoys hiking, cheering on the Cleveland Cavaliers, and feeding her sushi addiction.
