About Katie Walters MA, CCC-SLP

After leaving her previous career in theater, Katie got her CF in both a school setting and a private clinic in Florida. She knew she wanted to experience as many different areas as possible in the field to find her niche, so she sought out work in every setting afterward. She did PRN work at an inpatient rehab hospital, worked at an SNF, worked on the assistive technology team with a school district and with self-contained classrooms at the high school, PRN work in acute care, SLP for elementary students, SLP for self-contained medically fragile classrooms and Autism support classrooms, teletherapy for elementary, middle, and high school students, and on—everything but Home Health. Her areas of therapy interest are working with students who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, Assistive Technology, and Neuro-Cognitive impairments (congenital or acquired), but she loves it all.

Katie currently lives in Knoxville, TN with her husband and two pups, Rosie, and Gracie. She loves hiking, walking/playing with the dogs, digging in the dirt, and planting flowers; just being outside. She hopes to travel again, soon!
