At the age of 10, Elizabeth and her family emigrated to the United States, having spent the majority to her childhood living in the Dominican Republic. Moving to a new country and learning a new language allowed her to recognize the immeasurable value of language and communication, which ultimately compelled her to pursue a degree in Speech-language Pathology. Elizabeth received her Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Andrews University where she also obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology-Audiology as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Studies. She has acquired experience working with the adult and pediatric population. Elizabeth is certified in Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT®) LOUD, SPEAK OUT!® and VitalStim® Therapy for Voice & Dysphagia Impairments. She aspires to empower her patients to become effective and confident communicators by providing comprehensive, evidence-based evaluation and intervention to a diverse population.
