In Spring of 2011, she moved into the home health setting and began working at Therapy 2000, a home health company in the area, where she developed a love for working with patients in their home environment. After 2 years in home health, Children’s Health asked her to re-join the team and help build a home health agency. She spent 4 years building a wonderful program offering therapy (PT, OT, and speech), skilled nursing, and home medical equipment to pediatric patients in their home and community setting. In March of 2017, Jessica started Speech and Feeding of Frisco, a private speech clinic in Frisco, Texas. She is currently building her own private practice and starting her teaching career.
