Kathy Kelly

A highly skilled Speech-Language Pathologist and former nurse, Kathy has a strong clinical background working with both children and adults, and has benefited from having worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, home-based early intervention programs, community colleges, schools and private practice.

Kathy finds Speech Pathology especially rewarding because it provides the rare opportunity to assess, diagnose, treat, and follow a client over time until a successful outcome is reached. When planning and implementing a child’s therapy approach, she works closely with each member of the child’s team, including family members, teachers and therapists. Kathy is confident that a trusting relationship is the foundation for successful treatment, and maintains a strong rapport with children by balancing fun and learning. Kathy is a native Californian who enjoys time at the beach and playing baseball with her grandson.

Sara has worked in wide variety of settings, including public and private schools, home-based early intervention services, and private practice. Sara believes that a strong and loving rapport with her students is the cornerstone of effective therapy.
