I moved here from Wisconsin 12 years ago. We planted ourselves in the Lowcountry and now have 3 boys - Henry (6), Fred (4), Kenny (1). I’ve worked here 9 years. I’ve been working since the doors opened. I was brought on as a clinical lead but since we’ve grown, they have added more leads for each discipline. I am a speech therapy lead.
