About Nikki

I am a speech pathologist that has worked many years in the school systems, hospitals, home health, and clinical settings. I have worked with children and adults with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Aphasia, Downs Syndrome, fluency disorders and articulation and language delays. I have recently created a technique with music that helps recall memory skills along with articulation and fluent speech. This technique has caused children to speak first in single words, then word blends and then in complete sentences. I am well versed in B.F. Skinner's Behavior Modification Therapy, which focuses on positive reinforcement, and I believe even mutism can be changed with a combination of all of these therapies I have mentioned. I also train and certify dogs to be licensed therapy companions that can travel most places with my clients if desired.

I received my Bachelor's of Science and Master's Degree in Communication Disorders at Arkansas State University. I have recently returned for additional education in nutrition and swallowing. I have worked as a speech therapist for over 15 years and have enjoyed a proven success rate in the art of communication, from social speech to mutism.

On a personal note, I have been married for 29 years and have two adult children in college. My faith is strong in Christianity which has taught me to love and show compassion for all races and beliefs. Most people describe me as fun, easy to talk to, and a person that thinks outside of the box.
