Welcome to Rich Pond!! My name is Heather Kirtley. I am the Speech Language Pathologist at Rich Pond Elementary.
I received my undergraduate degree in Speech Language Pathology at WKU in 1990 , followed by my Master's degree from Vanderbilt University in 1992. I have practiced speech therapy for 20 years in a variety of settings including acute care hospitals, rehab centers, home health , in private practice as a First Steps Provider for Early Intervention Services 0-3 and in public schools. Over the past decade , I have focused my career in school - based speech therapy because I like working with children such as the great kids we have here at Rich Pond Elementary. This year marks my 8th year at Rich Pond Elementary where I have been blessed to work with great teachers and staff.
If you have questions or concerns regarding your child who is receiving Speech Therapy services at Rich Pond or if you would like more information about whether or not your child would qualify for speech/ language services at school , please feel free to email me or call me.
