I am second year grad student at Portland State University and was a participant in the Bilingual Concentration and traveled to Ecuador this past summer as part of the program. I've been volunteering for almost a year now with a Spanish support group for adults with TBI and their families. I also presented in Ecuador about the value of support groups for this population (adult Spanish speakers with TBI).

I have been blogging for packardcommunications.com, an accent modification website and blog, since this fall. I really enjoy post-writing, optimization with Yoast SEO, and collaboration with another professional (SLP colleague)
