Biography

I am an assistant professor in the School of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. Before coming to The University of Akron, I worked as a speech-language and special education supervisor for the Summit County Educational Service Center in the Akron, Ohio area. In addition to my administrative experiences, I was employed as a school-based speech-language pathologist (SLP) in preschool through high school settings in Ohio and Hawaii. While employed in Hawaii, I also owned and operated a small accent reduction private practice.

I am passionate about school-based speech-language pathology and special education issues. I authored two modules for the Ohio Master’s Network Initiatives in Education, www.omnie.org ,  that are devoted to service delivery and workload approaches. I completed a two year study with OMNIE that investigated the use of technology to e-supervise graduate students who were placed in rural and hard-to-fill school districts. I am currently researching 21 different caseload/workload approaches and the supply and demand of related service providers (e.g., SLPs, occupational and physical therapists). I particularly enjoy mentoring school districts and SLPs as they move from pullout only therapy to more inclusive services through the use of flexible scheduling strategies (e.g., 3:1 Model, block scheduling).

Finally, and most importantly, I am a husband and father. My wife, who is also a SLP, and I collaborate on grants and publish on topics that are related to school-based speech-language pathology services (e.g., e-supervision of graduate students, workload approaches).
