Melissa completed her clinical fellowship with Pacific Coast Speech in 2011. She began with us full time, moving to part-time as she built her family. Here’s what she said about why she loves Pacific Coast Speech:

“Help is always a phone call or an e-mail away. I know that at any time, for any reason, I can count on Louise and Annette to help me with caseload issues, whether there is a temporary swell in IEPs, a student with challenging needs, or an issue taking place at my site. Speech clinicians are in short supply all over, and demands from parents and administrators are high. I want to be sure I am doing my best for each and every student, while protecting myself from burnout and frustration by managing my workload. When situations arise, I know I don’t have to go it alone. I can call PCSS and they work with me or the site administrator to come up with solutions. It is that simple! They put their time and money where they say – in keeping my caseload manageable.

Thank you, Melissa, for 10 years of dedication to your students and to Pacific Coast Speech Services. You are a model of excellence!
