Kelleen earned her B.S. in Communication Disorders at the University of Washington before continuing at UW to earn her Master’s in Speech Language Pathology (Go Dawgs!). While at the University of Washington, Kelleen also completed two theses in the area of autism and communication.
After completing her training under a behavioral speech pathologist at Seattle Children’s Autism Center, she began providing speech and language services at Magnolia in 2015. Growing up as the sibling to a child with autism sparked a passion for supporting communication but also gave her a unique perspective on the key role of the family.
Kelleen has worked with children ranging from 18 months to early adulthood in a variety of areas including augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), childhood apraxia of speech, expressive and receptive language, pragmatics, articulation, fluency and voice. Kelleen is a Hanen certified speech pathologist. In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, swimming, exploring, or reading a good book. ©2010 Hanen Early Language Program. All rights reserved.
