"I focus on interdisciplinary collaboration with all members of the cleft palate-craniofacial team to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care. During speech evaluations, I spend extra time educating families on the anatomical and physiological differences affecting speech, resonance, and feeding in people who have craniofacial differences, including cleft lip and palate."
