community is our passion
Kent and Emily were married in 2005. They have 4 amazing children that they love to talk about. In 2010 Kent and Emily decided to make a difference in more children’s lives and opened Speech Pathway, which then grew to a team of clinicians in 2012 and has been growing ever since.

They advocate for children, families, and providers in order to provide the best possible outcomes for every family they serve. They are continually inspired by the amazing Speech Pathway team, and together they work hard to decrease frustration and unlock the power of communication.
