Mollie Clements, SLPCCC

Speech Language Pathologist

My name is Mollie Jo Clements and I have been a pediatric speech language pathologist for 4 years. I attended Murray State University where I earned a bachelors and masters in communication science. I've always had a heart for helping others and working with children so when choosing a career I knew speech language pathology was the perfect fit for me. I love helping children find their voices and being able to do this through play is just the cherry on top. I believe God led me to this field for a reason and I plan to continue building my skills to provide the best services. I have a particular interest and love for treating pediatric speech sound disorders, including childhood apraxia of speech, articulation delays/disorders, and phonological delays/disorders.
