• Hi! I'm Ms. Jess, the speech-language pathologist for Jackson Elementary and Buena Vista Montessori. I'm so glad you are here! I help students learn how to say speech sounds, learn new vocabulary, answer all kinds of questions, understand what they are hearing, and much more. 

    This is my fourth year as a speech-language pathologist, my second year at Jackson Elementary, and my first year at Buena Vista Montessori. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Anthropology from Kansas State University and a Masters degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Wichita State University. I am certified through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, and I'm licensed in Colorado and Kansas.

    My favorite things to do outside of school are reading, cooking, learning about cultures around the world, and hiking with my husband, also named 'Jess'.

    If you want to reach me, my email is My phone number is 719-328-4148. You may reach me by phone during my office hours: Tuesday-Friday, 8:00-9:00 a.m. and 12:00-1:00. We can also set up Webex meetings if you would like.

    I look forward to working with you through distance learning!
