Jill W. Hess, M.S., CCC-SLP

I am a qualified Speech-Language Pathologist with over 20 years of experience using evidence-based and family-centered therapy.  I attended Arizona State University and received a B.S. degree in Speech and Hearing Science in 1998.  I completed my M.S. degree in 2000 at Loyola College in Maryland.  Since 2000, I have worked in a variety of settings including early intervention, home care, and private practice.  I have owned my own private practice since 2006.  I successfully evaluate and treat a variety of speech and language delays and disorders, but have a passion and love for early intervention as well as treating Speech Sound Disorders, specifically Childhood Apraxia of Speech(CAS).  I have advanced training in CAS and am listed on the Apraxia Kids directory of SLPs with expertise in CAS. I also have advanced training and experience in oral-motor/feeding disorders as well as AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication).

My husband and I moved to Colorado in 2006 and have enjoyed raising our two children in this great state and community.  When I'm not working, I love to run, hike, do yoga, snowboard, travel, and hang out with my family.
