Kim became interested in speech and hearing after taking a sign language course in college. Following a class focusing on autism, she became passionate about severely language impaired children and early intervention. Since 1990, Kim has worked in a variety of settings being a school SLP, a teacher for autistic students, as well as private practice.
Seeing the need for an interactive therapy approach, Kim decided to start Crown Pediatric Speech Therapy. Reaching all kids and helping them communicate in their own way is the motivation that created Crown Pediatric Speech Therapy. Engaging families and creating interactive and fun activities that create communication opportunities is what drives Kim and all therapists at Crown Pediatric.
Kim has lived in The Woodlands for 23 years with her college sweetheart and husband of 27 years, Mike. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her 3 kids (Cameron, Kendall, and Kirsten), traveling (especially to the beach), listening to country music, and supporting the FSU Seminoles!
Education: Bachelor of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology from University of North Texas.
Adiah is from Beaumont, Texas. She was introduced to speech pathology when her grandmother was treated by an SLP after suffering a stroke.
Adiah has always loved children and knew she wanted to have a career that would allow her to work with kids daily. Who wouldn’t want to play with kids all day while increasing their language and social skills?
Adiah has been practicing for 6 years and has worked in different settings including school districts, home health, and outpatient private practice. She enjoys working in early intervention, articulation, language, and autism spectrum disorders. One of the best things about this job, according to Adiah, is the collaboration and team approach taken here at Crown Pediatric.
Adiah feels that this team is so unique in the sense that we truly care for all of our children and caregivers. She is excited to be a part of a team that is continually growing and learning in order to provide the best therapy for our kiddos and their caregivers.
Adiah is married to Courtland and they have the cutest miniature schnauzer named Maxson. Her hobbies include working out, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
