About me

Hello! My name is Kristin Klanecky. I am originally from Nebraska, and I have now lived in Pennsylvania for over two years. My interest in becoming a speech-language pathologist began when I was overcoming my own speech disfluency as a child. Growing up, my mother worked as a teacher for students with special needs, and one of her friends was a speech-language pathologist. The therapist taught me fluency shaping tools that I still use today (pausing, easing into phrases, slowing down my speech). Although I did not formally receive services, the empowerment that I felt when taking control of my communication has always been at the forefront of my mind. From this meaningful experience, I learned the importance of empathy and advocating for clients to promote skill development and confidence no matter what barriers are present.

Other interests

Outside of being a speech-language pathologist, my interests include spending time with my friends, family, and two dogs. The more time outside in the sunshine, the better! I love gardening, running, biking, and hiking. However, I also enjoy cuddling up with a good book.

Kristin has great communication skills, my kid connected with her instantly and started following her directions. She makes sessions interactive and keep the surprises and excitement for the kid. (My kid) was able to sit throughout the session and that would be the longest time he would sit in the chair.
