Thank you for your interest in SPEECH413!

I'm Alison Hiester, MS CCC-SLP (she/ her). I've been practicing speech- language pathology for nearly 20 years and take pride in my clinical style which focuses on individualized, integrative, compassionate treatment. I strive to provide my clients with a safe space that encourages self- care and creativity. I'm neurodivergent (ADHD) find it especially fulfilling to guide fellow humans to love themselves first as they discover their strengths... as well as their voices! Why 413??? SPEECH413 was named as a tribute to my grandmother, "Gramma" Jean, AKA Genevieve Victoria (Dragon) Kucharski. Her house number was "413," and it was a safe space for me to feel seen, heard, and unconditionally loved. I'm not sure if she realized what an impact her support had on my growth. However, I'm certain that because of her encouragement and acceptance, I became brave enough to use my own voice. Because of her validation and respect, I managed to be strong when I was at my weakest. With the knowledge and skills I've acquired through my training and experience, I endeavor to teach my clients to use their voices with pride, strength, and confidence. In the tradition of Gramma Jean, I'm passionate about the importance of seeing, hearing, and empowering my clients as we create their voices together.
