Jamie Casey M.S., CCC-SLP
My passion for helping people improve their speech and language skills began when I taught preschool after graduating with my first bachelors degree in Psychology. I established a strong relationship with all of the children in my class, but was particularly drawn to an ambitious, sweet humored, talented small child, who happened to have a cleft palate. She thrived in so many areas despite the challenges she faced with her speech and never let this hurdle keep her from communicating and participating in any social situation. Her speech language pathologist included me in her therapy and I was hooked. I saw the pride and joy that she experienced when she articulated her sounds correctly and I felt honored to be a part of her journey. Although my heart felt fulfilled working with those small preschoolers that year, I felt that my skills could be better used by obtaining another bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Science in 2010, which then brought me to receiving my Master’s degrees in Communicative Disorders from The College of St. Rose in Albany, NY in 2012. That was when my love for treating children with challenging and persistent speech sound disorders and fluency began.
