Elyse is a nationally certified and state licensed Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). In addition, she is a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS). A native New Yorker (Go Yankees!), Elyse was thrilled to be able to return to Wyoming with her family after completing her “tour” as an Army wife.
Elyse graduated with her Bachelor of Arts Degree from the State University of New York at Albany with a double major in archaeology & anthropology & worked across the country as an archaeologist which originally brought her to the great state of Wyoming. After 10 years of playing Indiana Jones, she returned to college and graduated with her Master of Science degree in communication disorders from the University of Wyoming (Go Cowboys!).
Following her husband’s Army career allowed Elyse to work in a variety of settings and with a variety of populations from pediatric through geriatric which provided her with a wealth of experience and diverse training. As a speech-language pathologist, I see children and adults with a variety of communication disorders, including those with cognitive-linguistic, aphasia, motor speech (dysarthria, apraxia), dysphagia (swallowing), voice, articulation and phonology disorders (speech sound problems), delayed or disordered language development, alternative-augmentative communication (AAC), and stuttering. Elyse has worked with a variety of populations including TBI, concussion, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, dementia, congenital conditions including autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, fetal alcohol syndrome, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, and cleft lip/palate, among others.
Elyse has a passion for working with those individuals with traumatic brain injury and is the only SLP/CBIS in the state of Wyoming. In addition, to working as an SLP, she has lectured at universities and taught courses on TBI rehabilitation at hospitals across the country with a focus on cognitive rehabilitation. She prides herself on designing patient-specific plans of care with proven results and evidence-based therapies.
