ABOUT ME

"If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the voice is its song."
-Kristen Callihan

My passion and purpose is the voice, and I find joy in helping others heal, release, and expand their voice and speaking potential. I have over a decade of experience collaborating with various speakers and voice users, including singers, actors, voice over artists, news anchors, public speakers, CEO's, radio hosts and more. I apply evidence based practices combined with holistic principles to create individualized experiences for each of my clients. 

I am an ASHA-certified and New York State licensed speech-language pathologist. As a dual alumna of New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, I earned a Masters of Science from the Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders and a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions. I am certified and trained in LSVT, videostroboscopy, PhoRTE and PROMPT and am a member of ASHA (Sig. 3, Voice and Upper Airway Disorders), The Voice Foundation, VASTA, PAVA, WPATH, and the New York Voice Study Group.

I currently hold a full time position as Clinical Assistant Professor in NYU Steinhardt's Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders, and serve as a per diem voice therapist at NYU Langone Health's Rusk Rehabilitation. I recently held a part time position as a Clinical Voice Specialist at NYU Langone Health's Rusk Rehabilitation.

I was recently featured on The Visceral Voice Podcast where I speak about my philosophy and work as a voice specialized speech-language pathologist.
