“The voice is a representation of our selves to the world. Voices convey depth, intention, meaning, and flavor to our words. Even mild hoarseness can rob us of our ability to communicate in the way we intend. A strong healthy voice is a vital part of teaching or doing business. It contributes to entertainment, service, and communication with loved ones. My purpose every day is to help you to achieve the best possible voice so that you may live your life to the fullest. My promise is that I will work my hardest to help you express yourself the best. For over 15 years my subspecialty focus has been voice, throat, and swallowing disorders. I am honored to be able to provide this service and to be a part of improving lives.”
