Megan M. Burfield, M.S., CFY-SLP
Hello! My name is Megan Burfield and I am very excited to join the therapy team at kidsense! I moved to Hood River in August and have already fallen in love with this community. I grew up near Rochester, Minnesota and received my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
I began my formal training in speech-language pathology six years ago, attaining a comprehensive background in early childhood language development, adolescent and teenager social skills training, articulation and phonology therapy, school-age language development, and voice disorders. I have gained a large amount of experience providing speech and language services through early intervention, and within the school system from preschool up to 12th grade.
Coming from the Midwest, my interests include hiking, running, biking, kayaking, and spending as much time as I can outdoors, which has served me well so far in the Columbia River Gorge!
I believe in the power of communication and am passionate about helping each one of my kiddos achieve the ability to successfully communicate within their community. I strive to create therapy sessions that are empowering and utilize each child’s strengths to help him/her succeed. I look forward to meeting everybody, and providing support and encouragement in any way possible!
