Sam enjoys working with individuals across all ages. Her clinical interests include assessment and treatment of complex communicators, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), pragmatic/social language and cognitive-linguistic disorders, as well as early intervention. She also evaluates and treats for articulation or phonological and motor speech disorders (e.g., apraxia), fluency or stuttering, and receptive-expressive language delays. Individuals diagnosed with hearing loss or autism are additional populations that she’s gained increased experience with. Sam’s adult experience includes neurologic/cognitive-linguistic, speech, voice, language, and swallowing disorders.
Born and raised in rural South Dakota, Sam understands small town, ranching community. Her experience growing up on the family homesteaded ranch provides her a strong work ethic and interest in the outdoors. While not at work, Sam enjoys her time spent outside hiking, backpacking, canoeing, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding or working on the family ranch. She also enjoys time from home gardening or cooking.
