Christy Friedman

M.A. CCC-SLP / Owner

Christy is a Cincinnati native and mother of two young children. She has always had a passion for working with children, education and food & culture. At the start of her career, she could be found working in prominent kitchens in upstate New York, Chicago, IL, Sarasota, FL, Cincinnati, OH and later in her own kitchen, creating wedding cakes and specialty pastries for clients. While her passion for culinary arts and baking & pastry are strong, she felt it was time to professionally hang up her chef coat and pursue her passion for helping and working with children. Christy went on to pursue her Masters in Speech-Language Pathology at the University of Cincinnati. She has 10+ years of experience working in schools and private practice as a speech-language pathologist and teachers assistant. Her experience includes collaboration with school staff, occupational therapists,  physical therapists, counselors and training in The PROMPT Method. She also has experience collaborating with various school districts as a past Jon Peterson Scholarship provider, where she attended ETR and IEP meetings, updated the IEP's of recipients and implemented services to students on her caseload. Christy has a passion for early intervention, apraxia, articulation/speech sound disorders, literacy and language disorders. When she is not working with clients she can be found creating something delicious in the kitchen, on an adventure with her family, cheering on favorite sports teams or working on creative art projects with her daughter.
