1. Why or how did you decide to become an SLP?
I decided to become a SLP after observing a professional near Athens, Georgia. After one day of observation, I was hooked and never looked back!
2. What is your favorite therapy toy/activity?
My favorite things to use in therapy are anything relevant to the client’s life. A child who loves cars? Let’s use cars! An adult who loves attending church? Let’s use Bible verses! I’ve always found that it’s easiest to connect with those we serve when we meet them where they are, and I love that I can do that with my profession!
3. Favorite part of your profession?
I have two favorite parts of my job! I love that I get to connect with each client and their families in different ways. Watching everyone grow and meet goals in their individual way is so much fun! I also love working as a team with so many awesome speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists at The Therapy SPOT. Collaboration really can make the biggest difference in a client’s progress, and our team is the best!
5. What is something you don’t know about my speech-language pathology or a surprising fact about SLPs?
SLPs can help you or those you love with SO much more than you think! We’ve had specialized training in so many areas (such as voice, resonance, articulation, language, feeding, swallowing, fluency, cognition), and we love to share what we know with you.
4. What is something you don’t know about me?
I’m married to the most wonderful husband in the world, and we love playing tennis and visiting Saint Simons Island! We’re expecting our first baby (a sweet little girl) in April, and we’re so excited to meet her! I also love cooking new and fun recipes!
