Kimberly McPhee, M.S., CCC-SLP

My name is Kimberly McPhee.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania and continued my education at Nova Southeastern University, in Florida, where I was awarded my Master of Science degree. 

I have extensive experience working with both pediatric and adult patients.  I received training in PROMPT, Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT), Dynamic Tactile and Temporal Cueing, Food Chaining, Feeding Therapy: Sensory-Motor Approach, and Greenspan Floortime.  In therapy I enjoy being creative and finding new ways to motivate each patient.  Although this profession is challenging the rewards are immeasurable.

I live in D.C. and enjoy bike riding on the many trails around town, meeting up with friends at great new restaurants, and even learning how to play golf.  Fore!



Megan Aldrich, M.S., CCC-SLP

My name is Megan Aldrich.

I am originally from Wisconsin, but have spent the last two years working as speech-language pathologist in a multi-disciplinary clinic in Phoenix, AZ. I was awarded a B.S. in Communicative Disorders and an M.S. in Speech-Language Pathology, both from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Go Badgers!

I owe my interest in speech-language pathology to my aunt. She is only 8 years older than me and has cerebral palsy. As a young child, I would steal her communication device and try to talk with it when she and my Grandma weren’t looking. Luckily for me, I never broke it so they never got mad!

Early experiences such as that led me into what can only be described as ‘the best career ever!’

Besides speech-language pathology, I love doing anything outside, watching the Brewers and Packers win, and visiting my friends all over the country. I consider it an honor to call myself a speech-language pathologist and am grateful that I am allowed to work with such wonderful kids and families.

Nicole Herndon, M.S., CCC-SLP

My name is Nicole Herndon.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. I continued my education at Purdue University and earned my Master of Science degree in Speech-Language Pathology.

At an early age. my mother recognized how much I enjoyed helping others. I would dress up in my mom’s clothes and play teacher with my two younger brothers. While they did not always listen to the “teacher” and do their “work”, I still enjoyed the game. When I was a teenager, my grandfather suffered a traumatic brain injury that affected his speech, language, cognition, and voice. I heard about the progress he was making with his speech-language pathologist and became interested in the profession. In high school, I shadowed a speech-language pathologist, and the rest is history.

I am experienced working with children and adults and have specific interests in receptive and expressive language disorders, speech disorders, voice disorders, and dysphagia.

I am trained in PROMPT and Social Thinking by Michelle Garcia Winner. In 2015 I was honored to have my research in Respiratory and Laryngeal Function in Occupational Voice Users selected for presentation at the American Speech-Language Hearing Association convention.

I love spending time with my family and friends, traveling around the world, and exploring the great outdoors. I am excited to be a member of the Washington Speech team!
