Heather’s Speech Therapy is a speech therapy blog for speech therapists, parents, speech therapy assistants and other educators. I love sharing materials and tips that I use in my speech therapy with all of you. I’m so glad you are here! Thank you for following my speech therapy blog. I started this speech therapy blog when I was pregnant with my first daughter, Gianna Joy. I knew I would be going out on maternity leave from my school speech therapy position so I wanted my students to have a place to get resources. I would love to blog every day – all day if my life would allow it. I hope to continue to blog for you all more and more in the future!
I graduated from the University of California at a Santa Barbara with a B.S. in English and a minor in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I then went on to pursue my M.S. degree in Communicative Disorders and Sciences from California State University Northridge (aka CSUN). I am an ASHA certified speech-langauge pathologist and licensed in the state of California. I also hold my Rehabilitative Services Credential.
My passion for speech therapy has led me to work with all ages ranging from infant (0-3) through adults! I have worked in public, private, and charter schools. I have started my own private practice called, High Sierra Speech Therapy, Inc.!
I’m a wife and mom of 3 kids (ages 5, 3, and 1)! I love my family. They keep me VERY busy! God is our rock. Amen.
Many of you have followed my blog over the years and know that my oldest daughter (now age 5) is a survivor of stage 4 germ cell tumor cancer! She is our miracle girl. Thank you all for your support along that difficult journey (December of 2012 to July of 2013 – when we got to finally come home!) She is now 3 1/2 years cancer free!
Every day is a gift from God. xoxo
