ABOUT ANNE

Hiking Red Rock Canyon near Las Vegas

Anne has devoted her career (& much of her personal time) to assisting adolescents and adults with communication, cognitive and swallowing difficulties. After obtaining her Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology, in 1985, from the University of Iowa, Anne moved up to Anchorage to live and work here full time. The first time Anne came to Alaska, in 1982, she knew she would live in Alaska. She worked for few years in a medical rehabilitation and contract work for a hospital before starting her private practice in 1988. Anne continues to work mostly in private practice, but is also affiliated with medical facilities around the state. 


In her “other” time, Anne is an avid trail and ultra-endurance runner, backpacker, traveler and cook. She has been married to her husband since 1985; they enjoy sharing their home with a succession of cute (rescue) dogs.

Swallowing (Dysphagia) Evaluation and Treatment

While Anne’s office is not set up to do instrumental assessments of swallowing (MBSS, FEES), we can use this information and the clinical swallow evaluation to establish effective therapy and safety guidelines for swallowing skills.

Telehealth/Teletherapy Services
