What got you interested in working with FRPT?
Julie’s magnetic personality and passion for the field. Having met multiple therapists at ECLC, who were happy at FRPT left me with a great impression of the company.
What do you love most about being a speech therapist?
I live for those lightbulb moments, where you’ve been wracking your brain on how to best help a child, and you finally crack the code on how to write their goals, approach their sessions, or what level of support to provide.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
I hike, climb, play games, travel around the country and world, work on my cars, race my cars, read, and watch far too much TV. I have Zoo and Pike’s Peak memberships, which enable me to adventure to fantastical places in 30 minutes or less. I have a fantastic whiskey and gin collection to boot.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I have ADHD, and working with my kids in therapy has helped me realize new ways to work through the struggles I face. They’ve also helped me realize that ADHD can be a blessing just as much as it used to feel like a curse.
What is your favorite activity to encourage learning and growth with kids?
Whatever activity they can actually fit into their daily lives. It’s hard enough being a parent. I want them to see therapy as a gateway to better things, rather than a task that they dread.
