Meet the Team
The 'We' in We Communicate emphasizes the importance of all team members supporting a person. With a connected team, a person is best supported towards stronger communication skills and overall improved quality of life. Here's to doing that together!
Becky McArthur, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University (Waterloo, Ontario) and Western University (London, Ontario) as of 2015. I have worked solely in private practice with clients across the lifespan. Private practice lit a fire in my professional soul by allowing me to provide quality, direct service while creating strong relationships with families.
I live in Kitchener-Waterloo but my hometown of Simcoe has always tugged on my heart strings. I am fortunate to have worked alongside many speech-language pathologists and a variety of other professionals and am glad to continue to have a relationship with these people today. I am thrilled to be able to provide private speech-language pathology services to offer service to families eager to begin a path to better communication for their child!
I enjoy walking my Mexican rescue dog, Cabot, reading a psychological thriller, and staying active with whatever my current jam is at the time (right now, it’s hopping on the Peloton).
Danielle Boot, Speech-Language Pathologist
I’m a graduate of McMaster’s problem-based learning speech-language pathology program. During my final semester, I had a placement at We Communicate. Now, I am honoured to join the team!
My undergraduate degree is in cognitive science of languages (McMaster University) and I have an additional Masters degree in Professional Education with a focus on literacy (Western University). While completing my SLP education, I gained interest in Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) - the use of technology and other supports to help individuals express themselves. I love discovering what makes each child unique and working alongside families to help them reach their goals.
I live in Hamilton with my husband. In my spare time I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, and going on walks in nature.
I am a graduate of Western University’s Master of Clinical Science (Speech-Language Pathology) program, and Brock University’s Applied Linguistics (Speech and Language Sciences) program. As a neurodivergent person myself, I strive to create a therapy environment which is relationship-centered, strengths-based, and neurodiversity-affirming, while helping
families feel empowered and supported on their unique journeys.
My passion lies particularly in early intervention and working with emerging complex communicators and Autistic children. I also have experience and strong interest in articulation/phonology, feeding/picky eating, and literacy difficulties. I firmly believe in all of us being on a life-long learning journey with room to grow, and working collaboratively with families
to discover how to best support their child.
When not doing *all the things* S-LP, you can find me on the yoga mat, reading a good book in my hammock, or enjoying nature with my dogs.
Sarah Jones, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a graduate of Western University’s Health Sciences and Master of Clinical Science (Speech-Language Pathology) programs. I have been working in the area of pediatrics since I graduated in 2011. During my time as a Speech-Language Pathologist, I have gained extensive experience in the areas of early childhood language development, autism spectrum disorder, speech sound disorders and working with children with complex communication needs.
I have extensive training in addition to my degree and believe there is always an opportunity to develop as a clinician. I have passion for working with families and supporting them in achieving their goals for their child. I believe we can work together to build in opportunities for
children to grow and learn in everyday, fun activities.
I live in Brantford with my husband and our two young children. We enjoy being outside, playing sports and being with family and friends during our free time.
Mallory Tomblin, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a graduate of the Speech and Language Sciences program at Brock University (St. Catharines, Ontario) and the Speech Language Pathology program at Western University (London, Ontario). My strong desire to help and educate others, along with my love of working
with children led me to pursue an education and career in this field.
I have a passion for providing family-centred care, as each family requires a unique approach to intervention depending on where they are at in their journey, what support the child needs, and what is functional for the family. I love creating a fun and engaging environment for children to reach their goals, while educating and empowering parents to support their child toward stronger communication. I have a strong interest in the areas of articulation/phonology, early language intervention, developmental language disorders, and literacy. I am looking forward to providing services in these areas as a member of the We Communicate team!
I currently live in Woodstock, where I was born and raised. I love drinking tea, reading a good book, spending time with family and friends, and going for walks or doing yoga to stay active.
Katie Kennedy, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a graduate of McMaster’s problem-based learning Speech -Language Pathology program (Hamilton, Ontario). My undergraduate degree is in Cognitive Science of Languages from McMaster University. My passion and experience lies in supporting individuals learning how to read. I love watching clients gain confidence at school when
they are able to fully participate and pick up a book because they WANT to read! I am very excited to be a part of the We Communicate team to support more families on their reading journey!
In addition, I have gained additional education and experience in preschool language and speech sound disorders. I am an advocate for play based learning, so you will find me on the floor playing with your child, while helping them express all their bright and wonderful ideas and be more clearly understood!
I live in Guelph with my husband. I love hiking, spending time with our family and friends, and I want to travel the world!
Nicole Bauman, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a graduate of Western University’s Master of Clinical Science (Speech-Language Pathology) program and the University of Guelph’s Applied Human Sciences program (Child, Youth and Family major). In my experience as a speech-language pathologist in the school setting I learned that building meaningful relationships with families provided the strongest foundation for building students' communication skills. I am thrilled to contribute to We Communicate’s mission to support, inspire, and empower families.
I have a strong interest in the area of early literacy because I have seen how developing these skills strengthens not only the academic success of children, but also their social and emotional success. I have additional experience in a variety of areas including articulation/phonology, language development, and social communication.
I currently live in London. I enjoy playing basketball (preferably outside!) and spending time at the family cottage in Annan.
Regan Duff, Speech-Language Pathologist
I am a graduate of University of Toronto’s Master of Health Science program (Speech-Language Pathology) and University of Waterloo’s Bachelor of Science program (Kinesiology). Since graduating in 2008 I have worked in the area of pediatrics, finding joy in helping families support their children on the way to their full potential.
I believe that parents are the experts when it comes to their child and therefore have a passion for collaboration in play-based therapy to achieve a meaningful change. I have substantial experience in the areas of autism spectrum disorder, speech sound disorders, early language acquisition, feeding, complex communication delays, and delays related to hearing loss. Above all, I believe that having fun is essential to effective learning. I can’t wait to bring that fun to my clients at We Communicate.
When I am not working, you can find me hanging out with my husband, two children, and our dog in Kitchener-Waterloo. I enjoy spending time at our cottage, creating memories through travel, and I’m a sucker for a great book!
