Making lemonade out of lemons🍋🍋
In 2020, as the pandemic turned most of our lives upside down, Cree had found a way to make lemonade out of her lemons. Cree did something that is relatively new in the speech profession: She became a TELETHERAPIST. Cree provides speech and language therapy to students and families through live video chat. This has provided her with a unique experience to work with not only the students, but their families as well. This has enabled Cree to be creative and think outside of the box to reach her students at their level of ability. She makes speech, fun and engaging while giving her students an extra push to reach their goals.

Cree is utilizing her SuperWoman powers to serve others. She is a businesswoman that has taken her love of speech to help others all over the country. Her business, So Speechy, LLC. is aimed at helping teachers and parents access speech materials to help students at any grade level.
