KATIJO

CEO, Speech Language Pathologist
Katijo graduated from Kent State University with a Master's in Speech Language Pathology. She was certified by the Ohio Board of Speech Language Pathology and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association in 2013. While studying she found a particular interest in treating speech sound disorders, language delays, and feeding-swallowing disorders which became a huge reason why she opened her own practice.  She is also a trained provider in SPEAK OUT!® and The LOUD Crowd® for Parkinson's.  Ultimately, she created the company, Innovative Therapy Center, to make a positive impact on others in the community. 
In her career she has provided assessments and therapeutic services in public schools through telehealth, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation hospitals, and private practice settings to both adults and children of all ages. 
Outside of her business she enjoys spending time with her family, camping on the weekends, reading books when possible, and traveling.
