Hi! My name is Erin Jankus. I grew up in the Chicago area and earned bachelors degrees in psychology, speech pathology and audiology from Purdue University. I went to graduate school at NAU in Flagstaff. I now live in the San Tan Heights neighborhood with my husband Jay, our son Cameron, our dog Layla and our very large desert tortoise Fred. I have been a speech pathologist for 16 years, and I have enjoyed every minute! I have worked in a variety of settings over the years: schools, clinics, hospitals, a camp for autistic children and in people's homes. I started my own therapy business called Play 2 Learn in 2010, and the name I chose is a great way to describe my philosophy when it comes to speech therapy: I believe that kids make the most progress when they are having fun. I want kids to get excited about coming to speech therapy, and I want them to feel challenged, inspired and confident as they work toward their goals. My best days are the days I get to spend with children. If more adults smiled, laughed and loved like children, this world would be a much happier place!
