About me

Hi! My name is Diahn, pronounced (Deeon). I live in Florida with my husband and my two dogs. My journey into speech pathology started in an unexpected way. When I was a freshman in high school, my 14 year old best friend had a brainstem stroke resulting in paralysis on one side of her body and an unusual need for a laryngectomy. Throughout her adolescent years, I witnessed many of her trials ranging from being in a coma, unable to walk, swallowing difficulties and loss of audible speech. It was extremely challenging, yet I observed her incredible determination and persistence to succeed. I’m happy to say she is now a very talented artist and embraces each day of her life with joy and enthusiasm! Little did I know at that time the seed for me helping those who have communication impairments was being planted. That seed took root in college where I received my Master of Science degree. The seed continued to thrive and was well nourished by my diverse experience working with a variety of ages in a private practice, schools, clinics, and a children’s hospital. The reward of seeing positive transformation in my clients’ communication has not only caused that seed to flourish but has resulted in my growth as a speech-language pathologist for 29 years. Throughout those years I have strived to keep my client’s interests in the forefront of therapy. I heard a professional speaker once say “Engagement equals success”. This is a motto that I apply in each of my therapy sessions to not only help clients achieve their goals but also to ensure therapy stays fun and enjoyable.
