Anastasia received her Master of Arts degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Maine in Orono and currently maintains her Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.
Prior to joining to Pine Tree Society, Anastasia worked in a variety of special education settings with students who had a wide range of speech and language needs such as language delay, articulation and phonological disorders, social-pragmatic language, as well as those individuals who used augmentative and alternative forms of communication. While at UMaine, she received valuable training in delivering services using an online video conferencing system, also known as telepractice. Since then, she has been able to connect with clients in the remote areas of the state who otherwise would have limited access to speech-language services near them. She has also had the opportunity to train other speech-language pathologists on telepractice technology which allowed them to reach out to individuals with communication disorders throughout the state, eliminating the need for long-distance travel to access services.
