Lisa has been a practicing speech-language pathologist for 28 years and an artist for life. Her experience includes working with infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to the geriatric population. Her diverse international experiences include teaching and practice in Cambodia, Brazil, Romania, Guyana, Canada, and the US. This provides her with a heightened perspective on cultural competence and service delivery and are well suited for the culturally diverse population in Ottawa. Lisa has stopped taking private clients to have more time to pursue her dedication to the issues of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Disability Access, and Advocacy.

Lisa’s artistic expressions include dance, music, voice, and the visual arts. Over the course of her career, Lisa uses the arts as a modality to help clients better connect to their thoughts and ideas.

Lisa has led groups at the Aphasia Center in structured art lessons, making vision boards for the ModernOT Pain Management Group, and art for Social  Change groups at schools and in the community. In her personal time, Lisa is found somewhere in nature with her two dogs and her family, hiking, kayaking, or foraging. Lisa regularly volunteers in her neighborhood watch program, as the secretary of her younger child’s school council board, and on the Jewish Pastoral Care Team at the Ottawa Hospital.

The CORE Values of my practice are: ARTS:

  • Rapport

  • Sincere
My mission is to make communication accessible to all.
