Nicole Douglas, MA, CCC-SLP

Hello! My name is Nicole Douglas. I am a licensed and certified pediatric Speech-Language Pathologist. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri in 2018 with a Masters in Speech-Language Pathology. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, camping, and exploring national parks with my spouse, trying new restaurants, and hanging out with my three cats.

Although I am passionate about working with children of all ages and abilities, in my 7+ years of experience, I have found my niche working exclusively with children presenting with mild-severe articulation and phonological processing disorders. I firmly believe that early intervention is the key to future success and have dedicated my professional career to helping young children achieve their maximum potential by partnering with parents and caregivers throughout the therapy process.
