I reside in Pearland, TX with my husband and five sons ages 7-13. We are a blended, Murdock-Saltarrelli Family. I completed my audiology residency at The Methodist Hospital within the Texas Medical Center and at Houston Ear Research Foundation (HERF).
I earned my Doctor of Audiology (Au.D.) degree from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA in 2008. I achieved a Master of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2001 from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, LA. My undergraduate degree was also completed at Southeastern Louisiana University in 1998. I possess extensive experience as a medical speech-language pathologist (SLP) and cochlear implant audiologist / SLP prior to opening Autumn Oak Speech, Voice, and Hearing, PLLC.
I am unique because I am a speech pathologist, audiologist, and university adjunct professor for two Texas universities. My education has afforded me to better serve our guests at Autumn Oak. We serve over 1,000 guests from Pearland, Friendswood, Houston, Alvin, Manvel, League City, Santa Fe, Galveston, Woodlands, Katy, and Lafayette, Louisiana. It has been a true honor to serve my guests and allow me to share in their speech and/or hearing journey. I am candid with my recommendations, and I believe that is what others appreciate. My responsibility to you is to share my expertise and educate you, so you are afforded the opportunity to make an educated decision. I promise to walk you through your hearing and speech journey while sharing REALISTIC expected outcomes. Due to my strong ethics, education, and experience, I have been invited to present at a national conference to colleagues regarding audiology practices and services, as well as serve as a board member for the Audiology Quality Consortium.
During my free time, I enjoy volunteering at the local elementary school, volunteering with Houston Area for Parkinson Society and going to my sons’ sporting/extra-curricular events. During my “me” time you will find me reading a historical fiction book or watching a good Netflix movie. However, whichever way you find me, you will probably see an iced coffee with mocha in my hand! Honestly, I wish I could share running marathons as a favorite pastime and carrots in my hand, not coffee, but that is NOT me. My life is quite an adventure enough with my family of 7!
