Waters, Dani-Speech and Language Specialist

I am the Speech Language Pathologist for Charles T. Koontz Intermediate School and Valley Spring Middle School.  I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Alabama in 1989 and my Master's degree from Texas Christian University 1991. 

I have over 25 years of experience as a speech language pathologist.  I have worked in the public schools in Alabama, Texas, Virginia and now in North Carolina.  I have worked with students in Preschool through High School.  I had a private practice in Ashburn, Virginia for 9 years prior to moving to Buncombe County in 2014. 

I am part of the Assistive Technology team for the Buncombe County Schools.  I enjoy consulting  with the school district to problem solve how our students can communicate and access their educational goals.  
My interests in speech pathology are the following:  Comprehension of language, language expression, fluency and Assistive technology.  I enjoy learning about my student's interest and helping them to engage in school and communicate to the best of their ability.

In my free time I enjoy hiking with my husband and visiting my family.
