Jaclyn studied at New York University (M.S) and Brandeis University (B.A). As a recipient of the Teach NYC Scholarship, she has enjoyed the opportunity to give-back as a speech and language pathologist at the Laguardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts (made famous by the 1980 film “Fame.”)
Jaclyn is known for her creativity, empathy and dedication, delivering professional care to each of her clients through every step of their personal journeys. She works with interest in forming partnerships with her clients, establishing goals, methods and marking progress in-line with her clients interests.
During her graduate career, Jaclyn pursued additional opportunities beyond the classroom. She conducted a research study entitled, “Music Therapy and Speech Rehabilitation in Aphasia; A Longitudinal Case Study”, exploring the effects of music on speech and language in individuals with aphasia.
She also worked alongside Uri Schneider as Advocacy Intern at Schneider Speech, launching initiatives to provide support, awareness and education for individuals who stutter and their families. One such program, Schneider Speech "Mentorship Program,” continues to touch lives today. The program matches young people who stutter with other people who stutter, offering support, friendship and community. She also trained under Dr. Phil Schneider.
As a person who stutters (PWS) herself, Jaclyn served as a panelist speaker at events (hosted by Schneider Speech and the National Stuttering Association) sharing her own journey. She immersed herself in the stuttering community, both as a clinician and a PWS. She is involved in the local and national self-help community and she keeps up-to-date with the latest stuttering research, therapy approaches and specialized continuing education.
Jaclyn enjoys singing, playing piano and spending time with her family and friends.
