Jessica Salley, MS, CCC-SLP

HI THERE! I’m originally from “the mitten”, better known as Michigan. My background includes a bachelor's degree in communication sciences and disorders, as well as a degree in psychology, from Michigan State University. I then pursued my master's degree in speech language pathology at Arizona State University. Moreover, I obtained a level one certification in yoga therapy for children with special needs.

I adore being an SLP and believe in celebrating every step of progress, no matter how big or small! Our therapy style is built around creatively targeting and achieving a child’s goals through play, movement, and functional activities of daily living. It is such a pleasure to see the kids laugh and have fun as they make great strides within their speech, language, and feeding abilities.

Outside of working with children, my greatest passions include travel, spending time with my loved ones (usually over coffee), enjoying the new restaurants/events around Nashville, and being outdoors with my rescue pup! I have a cute 4-legged sidekick named Lincoln. If you happen to see us out and about, usually at Radnor Lake, say hi!

I look forward to meeting your family and collaborating with you!

Breanna DeKuiper, OTD, OTR/L

Hello! I was born and raised in the Nashville area. I am a graduate of Belmont University; my background includes a Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree and Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I love being a pediatric occupational therapist (OT) as it allows me to be creative, get messy, and stay moving. My favorite part about being an OT is helping children turn their once-weaknesses into super-powers. Being an OT has allowed me to turn my own childhood weakness (difficulty staying still) into a creative energy that keeps children engaged during their therapy sessions.

I am passionate about using extracurricular activities, or leisure, as a mode of treatment for occupational therapy. Our treatment style allows children to learn foundational life skills in the context of their own hobbies and interests. I did martial arts for 11 years as a child and believe that it was an integral part of my own development.

I am drawn to anything that involves food, music, or being active. I have an awesome husband and a pup named Oliver. In my spare time, I like cooking, drinking coffee, singing (in my car), hiking, and rock climbing.

I am excited to get to know you and your family!
