A 22-year veteran pediatric speech/language pathologist, Valeri makes her home in beautiful Northwest Wisconsin, where she lives with her dairy producer husband, 3 children, 2 dogs, and over 2000 cows. Until just recently, Valeri taught exclusively in the public school setting, but this fall, she made the life-changing decision to continue serving children in a different way, via Teletherapy. She hasn͛t looked back and is completely happy and fulfilled with this change. An undergraduate of St. Cloud State University (St. Cloud, MN) and the graduate program at University of River-Falls (River Falls, WI), Valeri͛s professional interests in the field of speech/language pathology include visual phonics, literacy, phonological disorders, and social thinking. Excited to be a member of the GlobalTeletherapy Team, Valeri believes that ͚all children can learn’ and that ͚working smarter AND harder’ is necessary to achieve one͛s goals. In her free time, you can find Valeri singing locally with her besties in a group called ͞Mood Swing͟, trying to keep up with her changing family, and avoiding the barn chores.
