Krista received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Spanish and International Relations from the University of Minnesota. During that time, she spent a semester interning in Quito, Ecuador as well as a semester studying in Sevilla, Spain. After graduating, she worked with Spanish speaking families in the St. Paul School District for 5 years. While there, she happily discovered the field of speech-language pathology and returned to the Univeristy of Minnesota to complete a Master's Degree in Speech - Language Pathology with a bilingual, multicultural emphasis. That was 7 years ago. Krista has since enjoyed working with children in public school, non-profit and private practice settings. Areas of special interest include: communication disorders in diverse populations, auditory processing disorders, receptive/expressive language skills, oral-motor skills development, and literacy.
