Kaela is a CF-Speech-Language Pathologist with special interests in working with clients who are language delayed, deaf and hard of hearing, and children with Autism. She obtained her bachelor’s (2018) and master’s (2020) degree from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She has experience providing services within UNCG’s speech & hearing clinic, in school setting, preschools, daycares, and home visits. Kaela has always had a passion for working with children and helping them learn and grow developmentally. Kaela became a Speech-Language Pathologist because her younger sister was born with a rare brain disorder that caused various developmental and intellectual disabilities, including profound hearing loss. Growing up, Kaela always loved participating in speech therapy sessions with her sister, and that is what lead her on the path of helping children with various special needs. She strives for therapy sessions with high parent involvement while also keeping the kids engaged and motivated. Kaela is currently working towards her LSLS Auditory Verbal certification and started working with Pediatric Speech and Language Services in July 2020.
