Jamie Smith, a Speech-Language Pathologist, has been a member of the Galvin Therapy Center team since 2018, providing services to the diverse population that Galvin Therapy serves. Before her work at Galvin, Jamie graduated from the University of Cincinnati with her undergraduate degrees, and then from Case Western Reserve University with her M.A. in Communication Sciences and Disorders. She began her career at a school for autism, gaining two years of experience working with children with autism spectrum disorder ranging in age from elementary to high school. Although she “stumbled” into the field of Speech-Language Pathology, Jamie has a deep passion for working with children who have a variety of developmental disabilities, and helping her clients to develop and refine their communication skills. Speech-Language Pathology is the perfect field for her because of the overlap in her personal and professional passions, which have molded her to become a strong advocate for her clients. She tries to create awareness about the challenges her clients face on a daily basis and works hard to help them function as independently as possible. When she isn’t creating visual supports or brainstorming creative ideas for her therapy sessions, she enjoys spending time with her daughter and two dogs, as well as playing in a co-ed soccer league.
