Alexandra was born, raised and currently resides in Bethlehem PA. She attended Misericordia University in Dallas, PA, where she played soccer, conducted research in the field of speech language pathology, volunteered for service organizations and helped coach youth soccer camps. It was these volunteer, work and clinical experiences that helped Alexandra develop her love for the pediatric population. Alexandra obtained both her Bachelor of Science and Master’s of Science in Speech Language Pathology from Misericordia University. She currently holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech and Language Hearing Association. Alexandra is trained in PROMPT for Motor Speech Disorders and Childhood Apraxia of Speech. She is trained in high-tech communication devices such as Tobii Dynavox, Smartbox and PRC-Saltillo products. Alexandra also has an interest in parent-child coaching and is licensed in It Takes Two to Talk and 4 I’s to Socialize from The Hanen Centre. She often uses these specific approaches to work collaboratively with parents in their child’s speech therapy sessions to ensure that the family knows how to help their child reach and exceed his or her speech and language goals through a coaching model. Alexandra has a special interest in helping to build Pediatric Therapy at St. Luke’s augmentative and alternative communication program and enjoys working with families to trial and obtain funding for high tech speech generating devices. In her free time, Alexandra loves playing soccer year round in the Lehigh Valley Women’s Soccer League and spending time with her mini Australian shepherd, Rusty.
