Throughout the past six years of education Cassie gained experience in the evaluation and treatment of childhood speech-language disorders, autism spectrum disorders, compensatory mis-articulations related to cleft palate and velopharyngeal insufficiency, and a variety of other communication disorders. She is an active member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and is currently in the process of earning the Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC). During her studies, she was able to research child language development and disorders and presented her findings at two national conventions as well as several local symposiums. She is also an active member of the Oklahoma Speech-Language-Hearing Association where she is completing her Clinical Fellowship. She is constantly learning and expanding her clinical skills, and she strives to provide the best possible evidence-based treatment through continuing education.
In her free time, Cassie loves being outdoors, reading, traveling, and spending time in Tulsa with her family. She believes that the ability to successfully communicate is hugely important and she looks forward to partnering with you and helping your child reach his or her full potential!
