Meet Our Team

Advocacy is our middle name.

CHAT is a team of dedicated, caring, and talented speech language pathologists and advocates. We come from all walks of life, and many of us have worked in different professions before coming to CHAT. We're here because we believe that communication has the power to drastically transform someone's life.

Not only are we united by our desire to deliver the gold standard of care to each and every one of our patients, but by our common dedication to achieving more “communication justice.” Advocacy for the under-resourced and under-represented is always top of mind at CHAT. We believe deeply in equal access to excellent services for ALL children, and in the fundamental importance of communication to a person’s health, well-being, happiness and success. We’re excited for you to meet the team that makes our non-profit so special. Please contact us today if you think we can serve your school, your organization, or your family.
