Mobile Scope is a service that provides objective swallow evaluations for new and chronic sources of dysphagia by using a Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallow (FEES) at locations that normally wouldn't be able to perform these tests. Currently, each facility would have to send each patient to the local hospital for completion of an MBS which leads to lost time for completion of daily therapies, is a burdeon on the patient and creates a high cost for the facility and patient. Mobile Scope's fast evaluation time will help to reduce hospital readmissions, improve outcome measures and also increase the patient's quality of life.

She is a Speech Language Pathologist who has been practicing in the state of Arizona since 2011. She has worked in both out-patient and in-patient settings including SNF, acute rehab, community hospitals and trauma 1 hospitals. She works predominantly with the adult and geriatric populations. Her specialties include post-CVA, trach/vent, TBI, neurodegenerative diseases, and failure to thrive populations. Jessica completed the course work to become FEES competent in 2012 and has been performing these assessments in many different settings since. She is a highly skilled and caring person who will work thoroughly to make sure the patient gets the care that they need.
