Kristen HarperMS, CCC-SLP
Kristen has been a practicing speech language pathologist for 20 years who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders and received her MS in Speech Pathology from the Pennsylvania State University. Before joining Neuro Community Care, she provided clinical services primarily in home heath as well as in acute care hospitals, schools, and skilled nursing facilities to individuals who have traumatic brain injury, an acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury as well as swallowing/ feeding disorders and developmental disabilities including Autism. Through her opportunities to conduct in home assessments for the transition to the home and community after an acute care hospital stay, she discovered her desire to work in home care. This allowed her to work alongside the interdisciplinary team and families to promote functional gains in the home and community.
After living in various locations including Idaho, Texas, Western and Eastern Pennsylvania, she is excited to have Wake Forest, NC as her home. She lives there with her husband and three children. When she isn’t traveling to support her children through various sporting events, she enjoys the outdoors, traveling to the mountains or the beach, and attending theatre / musical events.
