Well it’s a new year and we have a new face to introduce to our Sprout Pediatrics family!  We are thrilled to have Leigh Ann Spell join our team as a part time Speech-Language Pathologist and a supervisor! Who best to tell you more than Leigh Ann herself!

I am a speech-language pathologist and former professor who decided to venture outside my comfort zone in 2012 to start my own speech-language therapy private practice specializing in helping individuals with their professional speaking skills (including accent modification) as well as in providing traditional speech-language therapy services.  I have enjoyed working in a variety of settings including a community speech and hearing clinic, a rehabilitation hospital and the public schools.

Originally from Ohio,  I moved to South Carolina in 1987 to attend the University of South Carolina for graduate school.  I met my husband, Jamie, while in graduate school and we have two children, Kyler (12) and Hannah (16), who are currently students at Chapin Middle School and Spring Hill High School.  I returned to USC and completed my doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology in 1996.  After teaching as a professor at Columbia College for 16 years, I decided to make my part time private practice full time so I could get back to providing communication services all of the time.  I remain on the faculty at the University of South Carolina as an adjunct associate professor in Communication Sciences and Disorders so I still get to teach a little bit as well.

I am thrilled to be joining Sprout Pediatrics as a part time speech-language pathologist and supervisor!  I look forward to meeting the wonderful children and families that Sprout Pediatrics serves.
