Adrienne graduated with her Bachelor’s of Science in 1998 and her Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology in 2000, having earned both degrees from the University of Central Arkansas. She lives in Conway with her husband Jason, daughter Riley, son Parker, and Cavapoo Dax. She enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors, and playing tennis.
Adrienne loves working in pediatrics and embraces children of all ages. She reflects on her favorite memories of working with kids: “My most precious memories of this profession are those that include me witnessing a child’s first words – either spoken aloud or by using pictures to communicate a want or need.” Adrienne has been integral in creating a close, family-oriented therapy environment that focuses on parental involvement and communication at Reach. “We have a team approach here, and the family is a major player in helping with the success of the children,” she says. She particularly likes hearing from the families of children she treats about speech-oriented games and activities carried over at home.
