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 blog. I started this 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 the families that I serve to have a place to get resources.
I graduated from the University of California at 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. I am ASHA certified and licensed SLP 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 infants (0-3) to adults. I have worked in many diverse settings including; public, private, and charter schools, SNFs, and private practice.
I have also started my own private practice called, High Sierra Speech!
I’m a Pastor’s wife and homeschooling mom of 3 kids (ages 9, 7, & 5)! I love my family. They keep me VERY busy! My oldest daughter is a survivor of stage 4 cancer and my miracle girl. God is our rock and everyday is a gift from Him!
