Jessie was born and raised in Maryland. She moved to North Carolina with her now-husband after receiving her Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Towson University in 2014. Prior to becoming an SLP, Jessie worked with disabled and non-disabled children and adults in the U.S., South America, and Australia. These experiences ultimately led her to the field of speech-language pathology. She began her career in early intervention and most recently spent six years working in the public schools. Jessie is dedicated to providing neurodiversity-affirming communication services that respect the autonomy and unique strengths of each individual child, and partnering with families to create a trusting and collaborative therapeutic environment. Jessie has two children of her own and enjoys family adventures in her free time.
