Kelly often says that a good pediatric Speech Language Pathologist embodies three attributes: patience, flexibility, and a great sense of humor. With Kelly’s open communication style, families are encouraged to play an integral role in their children’s therapy. She truly believes that each child is unique and their treatment plan should reflect that individuality.
Kelly has a special interest in early language development and children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Kelly earned a Bachelor of Education in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia and a Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. She is a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist and is currently working toward her Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA).
Through her graduate training, Kelly worked in a variety of settings gaining experience with craniofacial abnormalities, tracheostomies, Autism Spectrum Disorder, expressive and receptive language disorders, articulation disorders, and reading/writing disorders.
Kelly recently relocated to Baton Rouge. Her hobbies include spending time with family and friends and teaching swim lessons to people of all ages. She is also a self-diagnosed “foodie” and is always interested in trying new foods and restaurants.
