You found me! I am Melissa, the redhead behind Speech Chick Therapy. I have been in the speech therapy field for over 17 years. While in graduate school, I was an SLP assistant in the public schools in Texas. Once I graduated, I remained in the school system, but dabbled in other areas such as home health. I found out I loved worked with families to help their child! I started Speech Chick Therapy in October 2010. To this day, I am still a solo therapist running this business. So when you call to schedule an appointment, you talk to me!

I am married to my high school sweetheart. We have two kids, a daughter and a son. Both are active in basketball! So when I am not doing a speech therapy session, I am usually sitting on the sidelines, cheering them on! I love pink, glitter, Converse shoes, tacos, candy, pizza and cookies.
