Hi! My name is Tashala Simpson, hailing from Greenville, NC. I am a graduate of North Carolina A&T State University where I obtained a bachelor's degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. My passion for the field started in grade school when my sister was born 3 months premature and needed feeding therapy and speech and language services for the next few years. I studied sign language and did many hours of volunteer work in all disciplines of the field before obtaining my degree. This experience has solidified my decision in choosing a career that I not only find fulfillment in, but also make a difference in the lives of both children and adults.
Hi, my name is Samantha McLeod, and I am a SLPA & Clinical Manager at Complete Speech Therapy and Wellness. I have been employed with the company since April 2016, but have been practicing speech therapy since 2011. I am originally from Fayetteville North Carolina, and received my certification in Speech Language Pathology Assistant from Fayetteville Technical Community College. Prior to pursuing a career in speech, I was a child care provider for 13 years. I thoroughly enjoy working with children, and truly believe that despite the cognitive or language deficits, all children can learn provided the proper tools, and effective communication is one of the most important tools. I work with children of all ages, but my passion is with preschool-aged children. I enjoy seeing their fascination with exploring new things, and developing new skills. I have experience working with children who have language and learning disabilities, expressive and receptive language delays, articulation deficiencies, auditory processing issues, phonological disorders, and limited social skills, and I have worked in public schools, early intervention and private practice settings.
My name is Kathy and I have been a Speech Pathologist since 1980. I have worked in the school system and in the home health care division.
