Tierani (sounds like “Tier-uh-knee”), often goes by “T,” is one of our newest SLPs on staff. In 2020, she graduated summa cum laude from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center with her master’s degree in speech language pathology. “The reason I became an SLP was to be a leader. As a child, I was bullied and felt like I had no adult (besides my family) to trust or support me. I ended up finding trust in a basketball coach. He provided a light and encouragement into my life that I wanted to pass on to others. I can truly say I have the best career,” she says about becoming a speech pathologist.
Her favorite part of her job is building relationships with her clients and their families while helping them achieve their goals–together. At home, she is a wife to her husband, Chad; and a “mama” to their pocket beagle, Zeno. Tierani enjoys watching sports (especially football and softball), running, playing golf, singing, dancing, and binge-watching Harry Potter and The Big Bang Theory.
