About Me

Hey there!! 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, Go Bulls! 
My husband, Kevin, is also from St. Petersburg and co-hosts the afternoon drive show for a local radio station, WiLd 94.1.  We got married in 2010 and had our beautiful Kenzie in 2012. Then our handsome little Kameron completed our family in June of 2015! These two keep me on my toes and help teach me the definition of being a patient person! Kenzie enjoys dancing and Kameron loves baseball. 
I started my career working for Pinellas County Schools. After having children and needing some more flexibility, I switched to private therapy. In 2013 I joined TheraChoice, a private therapy company 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 enjoy creating therapy materials and sharing ideas on my blog. I recently started sharing more than just speech related topics because as a busy mom, I love learning others tips and tricks (from easy dinners to sales!) I hope you enjoy Simply Speech and can find some great ideas and inspiration... after all, that is why it's here!
