Who is Amy?
Thank you for being here! Hello, my name is Amy and I was born and raised in Texas. I have lived in our wonderful community of Buda for more than 14 years.
After receiving my degrees from UT Austin and UT El Paso, I opened Therapy Center of Buda, a pediatric, family-centered speech-language and occupational therapy clinic, in 2009.
I serve as the clinic director and practicing lead pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). In this role, I frequently collaborate with the Hays Consolidated Independent School District in 504 accommodations and Individualized Education Plans for children with special needs.
I am a staunch advocate for neurodivergent communities, dedicating my free time to educate others on the neurodiversity paradigm, trauma-sensitive care, and promoting acceptance of differences.
I also serve as the Chairperson of the Member Advocacy Committee for The Texas Speech-Language Hearing Association and I am a founding member of the Therapist Neurodiversity Collective. Additionally, I also wear the hats of a Certified Autism Specialist and a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist with over 16 years of experience as a licensed SLP.
My top priority, and the light of my life, is my amazing 7-year-old. I am a solo parent, so we have great adventures together, with our dog.
