Originally, I am from Berlin, Germany, which I I left in the spring of 1994 to move to Fresno, California. There, I joined the undergraduate course in Communicative Science and Disorders at the California State University, Fresno, which I completed in 1997. After earning the undergraduate degree, I gained a master’s in the same field in 1999. I then became a fully licensed speech-language pathologist and worked as part of a rehabilitation team in California for 3 years. In 2008 I completed my PhD at the Speech Department of Newcastle University where I became a lecturer in 2006.
