Dr. Moore has over 23 years of experience in the field, earning her clinical doctorate in 2018. For 15 years, she practiced in the schools of North Carolina as both a clinician and Lead SLP and was recognized as a Teacher of Excellence. In 2010, she expanded into private practice serving children of all ages. She completed the rigorous training and certification process to become a Certified Orofacial Myologist (COM®), pursuing this training after struggling to find help for her own daughter with a severe tongue thrust. Through this certification, she has started treating both children and adults and regularly presents for SLPs, orthodontists, ENTs, and dentists about the impact myofunctional disorders have on speech, feeding, chewing, breathing, dentition, and sleep.
Her main interests include treating myofunctional disorders, phonological delay, and articulation disorders, specifically /r/, using her own program Let's Hear It For /R/! which was the subject of her doctoral research study. For phonology, she uses and teaches others how to use Barbara Hodson's Cycles for Phonology due to the success she continues to have with the program. She has presented around the country for various state speech conventions/associations, county speech departments, and local universities and regularly teaches live online and through on-demand recordings on Expressions Seminars.
