Kristin was born and raised in Missouri and moved to California in August 2014. Her first love was the Spanish language which prompted her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Spanish at Truman State University. After graduating in 2003, she went on to work in the community, soon after returning to the university to work. In 2011, she found her next love in communication disorders. Graduating in December 2014 with her master’s, Kristin hit the ground running at Aspire Speech & Learning Center.
She has continued to hone her skills as a clinician and has found areas of professional interest in childhood apraxia of speech, early intervention, working with individuals with Autism, augmentative and alternative communication, bilingualism, and working with speakers of Spanish. Outside of work, Kristin enjoys spending time with her church family, singing, visiting the coast or the mountains, crocheting, reading, and relaxing.
