We are very excited to have Kelly join our team!  Kelly holds a Bachelor of Arts fromWashington State University in speech and hearing science and a Masters in Education in speech and hearing science from North Carolina Central University. She is a licensed speech-language pathologist in North Carolina and holds the Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA).

Kelly’s spouse was active duty Army for 20 years which gave her the opportunity to work in many states across the US to include Maryland, Washington, North Carolina, and Texas. She comes to us most recently from rural west Texas from the small town of Miles (population 849) where she worked in her own children’s public school. She has been practicing since 1996 in a variety of schools and pediatric clinics.  She started her career here in Fayetteville at the Developmental Evaluation Center and has also worked in many public schools and clinics before returning to Fayetteville to be near family.

Kelly has a husband, two children, and large extended family in the Fayetteville area and is planning to spend many years here enjoying her family and watching her children grow up.

Kelly has recently attended the following conferences:

“The Leo M. Croghan Conference is a conference for parents and professionals concerned with the care and development of young children. It seeks to provide professionals and parents with opportunities to learn new techniques, theories and practices from leaders in the field of early intervention for young children at risk for or with developmental delays or disabilities and to associate with others who are committed to learning about the early intervention field. The Leo M. Croghan Memorial Foundation, which sponsors the conference, aims to present information that is evidence-based or informed and that recognizes the importance of early intervention, family-centered service delivery, and collaboration between parents and professionals.”
