Gina received her bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders with a minor in Deaf and Hard of Hearing Studies from The University of New Hampshire. She earned a master’s degree in speech-language pathology at The George Washington University. Gina holds her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) and is licensed to practice in both Maine and New Hampshire.
Gina joined the Communications Pathways team in 2015 and she has experience evaluating and treating both children and adults with an array of communication disorders in a variety of settings. Areas of interest include Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), pediatric speech and language disorders related to developmental disabilities, feeding and swallowing disorders, and adult neurogenic disorders.
Whether it’s working with an adult to program their speech generating device, reading with a preschooler, or providing visual supports for a child with Autism to participate at Camp Communicate, Gina loves that each day is unique. She finds it most rewarding to see her clients make progress and to hear they’re applying skills learned in therapy throughout their day.
She has participated in trainings for the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS), Childhood Apraxia of Speech, social skills, and the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading, Spelling, and Speech (LiPS®). Gina also has attended national conferences for AAC, assistive technology, and speech and language disorders. She highly enjoys being a member of the Communication Pathways Team. In her spare time, Gina enjoys being active in the outdoors, reading, baking, and traveling.
