Our Team

We Are Passionate About Therapy

SpeechFamily’s amazing team of therapists has decades of experience delivering therapy across multiple disorders and environments. This allows us to customize therapy for each individual, improving their communication and quality of life.

Jenny Bowen


I am the founder of SpeechFamily and helping others improve their communication skills is my primary passion. Watching client’s confidence grow as their ability to communicate with friends, family, co-workers, and others improves is what drives me to continue to seek new ways to integrate speech and language therapy into their lives.

I enjoy working with children and adults with cognitive and communication disorders, such as receptive and expressive language, apraxia, dyslexia, phonological processing disorder, and dysfluency. I am trained in PROMPT, DIR/Floortime®, Lindamood Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing™, Applied Behavioral Analysis, and Multisensory Grammar.

Jenny has been recognized as an ACE recipient for her exceptional commitment to continuing professional development by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

In my spare time you can find me hiking and camping in the Georgian mountains, traveling, cooking, and entertaining my dog Chester.

Jeff Greenfield


I find no greater satisfaction than empowering an individual by helping them communicate more effectively and effortlessly. I have found that people of all ages are most successful in meeting their goals when there is open and frequent communication between the clinician and the client’s family, teachers, and/or other communication partners.

I enjoy working with children and adults. I am particularly interested in expressive and receptive language disorders, social communication (Autism Spectrum Disorder and other neurodevelopmental disorders), articulation, fluency, and feeding disorders. I am trained in the SOS Approach to Feeding, Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk. I have experience working in Dekalb School District and Atlanta Public Schools.

Jeff has been recognized as an ACE recipient for his exceptional commitment to continuing professional development by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association.

My interests include traveling, creating and listening to music, gardening/cooking, and spending time with friends, family, and my kitten Olly.



I believe meaningful relationships stem from effective communication with family, friends, and those around you, and I am passionate about providing the best evidence-based practice for each individual to build those relationships.

I have worked with a wide range of people with autism, aphasia, apraxia, dysphasia, dementia, and dysarthria within a variety of different settings. I am trained in Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES), Language Acquisition through Motor Planning (LAMP), Lee Silverman Voice Therapy (LSVT Loud), Lidcombe Program for Stuttering, and Hanen: It Takes Two to Talk.

In my spare time you can find me running, painting, or spending time communicating with family and friends.



I have over seventeen years of specialized experience in evaluating and treating adults and teens with neurological impairments.

During this time, I have treated a variety of complex cognitive-communication and neurological disorders, including reduced cognition and communication, dysphagia, dysarthria, aphasia, voice changes, and dysfluency. My work has spanned both inpatient and outpatient services across a broad range of settings, such as in-home, hospitals, clinics, skilled nursing, and behavioral units.

I have presented on many topics related to traumatic brain injury, collaboratively created a six-week program for auditory processing disorders, and was presented the Civilian Achievement Award for my work in the Department of Defense with military service members.

My interests include hiking, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and ballroom dancing.

Joanna Leonardo

Student Clinician

There is no greater feeling than watching someone reach their goals. My motivation to become a Speech Language Pathologist stems from participating in someone’s journey of growth and making a difference, big or small, in their life.

I received my bachelor’s degree from The University of Alabama and am currently pursuing my master’s degree in Communicative Disorders and Sciences at Baylor University. Throughout my educational journey I have worked with a variety of individuals with expressive/receptive language disorders, autism, childhood apraxia of speech, articulation, feeding, fluency and social communication disorders.

In my spare time I love to cook, spend time with friends and family, try new fitness classes, and coach a soccer team of 3-year-olds!

I look forward to furthering my knowledge as a clinician as well as building meaningful relationships while working with the SpeechFamily team.

Chester Prescott

Therapy Dog

I am a young Shichon with a passion for exploration. I’m a mix between Shih Tzu and Bichon Frise, making me soft and cuddly, hypoallergenic, and non-shedding. Humans commonly refer to me as a “teddy bear” or an “Ewok”.

I love attention and that means playing with people of all ages and dogs of all sizes. I consider myself a foodie, chewing toy aficionado, and a distinguished vocalist. When it's time for me to relax, I enjoy pampering myself in a muddy puddle, socializing on leisurely strolls, or swimming in the nearest creek.
