Meredith is a Speech-Language Pathologist who graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead. She earned a Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Speech/Language/Hearing Sciences and a Master’s of Science Degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Before completing her master’s degree, Meredith had the opportunity work as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant in the school setting for two years. This experience allowed Meredith to expand and grow her knowledge. Meredith has gained experience in a variety of settings during her educational career, including private practices, outpatient clinics, early intervention, and in-home therapy. The most and best progress, she feels, occurs while the child is engaged in a naturalistic teaching environment. She loves working as a team with families, parents, caregivers, and colleagues to ensure each child has the best opportunity to overcome their speech and/or language challenges.
While Meredith has a passion for language/articulation delays and disorders, she enjoys all aspects of speech and language therapy with children, and helping them to find their voice in whatever mode that my be (speech, picture symbols, ASL, or AAC). In 2018, she had the opportunity to present her research at the National American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Convention. Within the conference, Meredith was able to hear the latest research and gain new resources for treatment. Meredith is trained in Visual Phonics. Meredith is thrilled to join the Quotable Kids team! She has endless creative energy to apply to treatment sessions, and a passion to build upon the unique strengths of each child. She cannot wait to assist in empowering children to be as independent as they can be in their daily lives.
In her free time, you can find her spending time with her fiancé, family, and friends. She enjoys going to the zoo, the lake , and just being outside. Meredith loves being active, such as playing volleyball or going on walks. Here are some of Meredith’s favorites: raspberry Pure Leaf tea, pickles & carrots, forest green, elephants, and cinderella!
