Hello and welcome to Simply Speech! I feel like I have gotten to know so many of you through blogging so I figured I would give you all a little peek into my life!
This is me :)
I was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Florida.... and I am still here today! I knew I wanted to be a speech language pathologist since high school. A good friend of the family had a son who was diagnosed with Apraxia. I went to his therapy sessions and fell in love. At that moment being an SLP trumped wanting to be a teacher. The rest is history! I went to undergrad at The University of Central Florida (where I was an ADPi <>) and completed graduate school at The University of South Florida.
My husband, Kevin, is also from St. Petersburg and hosts the night show for a local radio station. We got married in 2010 and had our beautiful little Kenzie in 2012.
Currently, I work as a private therapist for EZ Speech, Inc in St. Petersburg, FL. I love my job and could not imagine doing anything else. Blogging has become a HUGE part of my life. I started blogging in August of 2011. I had just found Pinterest and so many great therapy ideas were linked back to teaching blogs. I was inspired to start a speech blog to share ideas with other therapists. I hope you enjoy Simply Speech and can find some great therapy ideas and inspiration... after all, that is why it's here!
