Chelsea first developed a passion for pediatric speech-language pathology when she was a nanny for a child with special needs. In 2012, she earned her undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Georgia. In 2014, she graduated with her Master’s of Education in Communication Disorders. Chelsea has gained experience with adult and pediatric populations in hospital, private practice, and school settings.
Chelsea began her career in the Public School system where she provided speech and language services to a diverse caseload of students in the areas of articulation, phonology, apraxia, expressive and receptive language, fluency, voice, autism, traumatic brain injury, emotional behavior disorders, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), and cognitive disorders. Chelsea specializes in Receptive and Expressive Language Disorders and delays, Autism and Social Language Disorders, Articulation, and Phonological Disorders.
Through her experience in the school setting, she has also become adept at navigating Eligibility and Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and can provide guidance to families undergoing these processes. Chelsea has come to love the private practice setting as it allows for more detailed interaction with both her clients and their families and allows her to work with kids long-term and share in their successful speech journeys.
Chelsea currently lives in Brookhaven with her husband and dog Oscar. She enjoys spending time with friends, traveling, exploring new restaurants, and working out.
