Speech Language Pathologist
Who is Panda Speech
A little background:
I am a speech language pathologist working in Texas. I have experience in the school systems, ECI programs (early intervention birth-3yrs), and outpatient clinics. I have also worked PRN in nursing homes to keep up my medical skills! I primarily work in schools (pre-k through 12th grade). I absolutely love my job and feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with families to help their child communicate. I currently run a private practice where I provide contract services to schools, public speaking engagements, tele-therapy services, and professional consultation services.
My mission with this site is to give speech language pathologists, teachers, and parents valuable tips and resources to encourage carry over of speech and language skills into the classroom, home, and community!

I also create materials in my Teachers Pay Teachers store: Panda Speech. My hope is that my original materials will help busy SLPs build a library of effective materials!
My other passion is my family. I am married to a wonderful man and have one son and two step sons! I am also a Boston Terrier enthusiast and my dog is my best bud! :)
I have a LOVE for community involvement! I am a Special Olympics coach in my area (track and swimming) and serve on the Board for Smiles for Speech. Smiles for Speech is a 501c Non-Profit that provides therapy services and materials to children in underserved areas all over the world. In the past I have coached little league teams (soccer and t-ball), was a Cubmaster for Cubscouts, Fundraiser chair for Boy Scouts, served on the Special Olympics Area Team Advisory Board, and served as the Communications Chair for the Panhandle Regional Speech & Hearing Association.
