Speaker. Educator. Innovator.
I am an ASHA-certified speech-language pathologist (SLP) who helps people understand people. In my clinical and research communities, I aim to reframe how we describe African American English linguistic features. I have worked as an assistant professor, qualitative researcher, and am a leading voice on cultural-linguistic humility, competence, and responsiveness. Currently, I am the Chief Staff Officer for Multicultural Affairs at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
