Deinna was born and raised right here in Buford, Georgia where she and her husband, Randy, still reside. They are proud parents of two grown sons and welcomed their first grandchild into the family in 2020. She’ll probably have a few pics to share if you ask her:) Deinna graduated summa cum laude from The University of Georgia with her bachelor’s degree in communication sciences and disorders and master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology. She is licensed in the state of Georgia and maintains her certificate of clinical competence with the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. She began her career 28 years ago in the Gwinnett County School System and has also worked for Lakeview Academy in Gainesville, GA and for Buford City Schools. Deinna currently works full-time for Gwinnett County Schools and part-time for Helping Hands. Her time spent in the public and private school sector has provided much experience writing and implementing individualized education plans (IEPs) assisting students in their communication development and academic growth. She has served pre-school through high-school populations and has experience with a variety of communication deficits including articulation, phonological, language, and fluency (stuttering). Deinna is passionate about making a real difference in the lives of the children she treats!
