She specializes in accent modification, drawing on over a decade of work with speech disabilities. She also enjoys working with high-level students, helping them achieve advanced performance levels.
Karly has a background in linguistics as well as a Masters Degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences from the University of Washington. She has experience in writing, editing, theatrical presentation, voice training, and non-verbal aspects of communication, and has helped many people develop (or regain) fuller functional expression in the workplace, the marketplace, and at home.
