Hello - I am Ms. Mal and I look forward to working with your student! I am a Speech-Language Pathologist at Bethalto East preschool and Trimpe Middle School. I grew up in Bethalto and graduated from Civic Memorial High School. I am thankful to be back and working in my hometown! I attended Saint Louis University and completed my Bachelors Degree in Communication Science and Disorders. I went on to graduate school at Southern Illinois University Carbondale and completed my Masters Degree in Speech-Language Pathology. I have experience working with the students with a variety of communication disorders, including articulation and phonological disorders, expressive and receptive language delays, fluency and stuttering, autism, voice disorders and central auditory processing disorders. On a more personal note, I am married and have a beautiful 2 year old daughter. We are also expecting a new little man in July. Our crazy family also includes two puppy dogs, Daisy Duke and Oden, that keep us very busy. In my free time I enjoy running, reading, walking the dogs, watching college basketball and quality time with my girlfriends.
