Julie Gonzales, M.A., CCC-SLP
Julie is a native of San Antonio, Texas. She earned a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Linguistics from Bryn Mawr College in Philadelphia and a Masters of Arts (M.A.) in Communication Sciences and Disorders from LSU - Baton Rouge.
Julie has worked in a variety of clinical settings ranging from early intervention pediatrics to geriatrics. She gained her clinical experience throughout the Baton Rouge community including Louisiana Key Academy, Baton Rouge General Hospital, Our Lady of the Lake Hospital, and the Scottish Rite Childhood Learning Center. She has clinical experience in areas including but not limited to articulation and phonological disorders, receptive and expressive language disorders, motor speech disorders, fluency disorders, cognition, and augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). However, she holds special interest in the areas of apraxia (motor speech disorders), receptive and expressive language disorders, dyslexia, and multilingualism.
Julie’s interest in speech-language pathology stems from her strong foundation in linguistics and passion for understanding the mechanisms of language in action. She views speech-language pathology as a natural bridge between her love of language and her passion for working with others as well as helping them progress to achieve a goal. She is a strong advocate for evidence based interventions as well as effective caregiver training to ensure her patients are receiving the best quality of care possible.
In her free time, Julie enjoys gardening, playing board games, hiking, and traveling.
