I am an American Speech-Language Hearing Association (ASHA) certified speech-language pathologist. I love to give clients the freedom to communicate their hopes, dreams, wants, and needs during every stage of life!
I believe that good therapists need to be flexible, fun, and evidence-based! I love to use games, but not every session, and I always support them with good therapy materials. I love to organize, and share ways to help you be more organized too!
I achieved an ACE (Award for Continuing Education) from ASHA in 2014, for 70+ CE hours in less than 3 years. That may never happen again, but I'm proud that it happened once!
I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Exercise Science. I earned my Masters in Speech at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, which is a city near and dear to my heart!
I married an engineer and moved to Pittsburgh, which was a lot different from my Southern upbringing! I see clients through my private practice, Jill Shook Therapy LLC, and create fun, evidence-based materials for you here on TPT! In my "free time", I love to run, bake, snuggle our senior cat named Rocky, read historical fiction, and work on DIY projects around our old house.
