Meet the Therapist: Annie

Welcome to our recurring Meet the Therapist series!  We love to hear about our clients' interests and activities outside of speech therapy, and we thought you'd enjoy hearing a few fun facts about our therapists!

Annie has been with the company since July of 2013, and she loves coming to work to see her clients every day!  She is a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist and has had experience working in school districts, early intervention, and private clinics.  Read on to learn more about Annie:

Where are you from?

Saint Louis, Missouri (go Cardinals!)

What do you like most about Boston?

I live a block away from the Arnold Arboretum and I love going there!  I also like all the old, historical buildings.

How did you decide to become an SLP?

My mom works at a preschool for kids with special needs, and I went in to work with her one day in eighth grade.  I fell in love with watching the speech-language pathologists there and knew that was what I was destined to do!

What are your professional areas of interest?

One of my favorite parts of the job is getting to work with so many different clients. However, I am especially interested in preschool language and pre-literacy, phonological disorders, and social skills.

What do you like to do in your free time?

I like to run, read, listen to podcasts, cook and bake, and play with my dog, Murray.

If you could choose anywhere, where would you travel to?

I would love to visit Montana and go hiking there.

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

I grew up with an old arcade-style Ms. Pac Man video game in my basement.  I have honed my skills over the years and am now a master at Ms. Pac Man!
