Maddy obtained her master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of North Texas and is completing her clinical fellowship at Link2Speech. She received specialized clinical training in the treatment of feeding and swallowing disorders from Wise Health System in Decatur, and Texas Health Resources in Fort Worth. Maddy was the first graduate student in her program to complete the McNeil Dysphagia Therapy Program Certification Course.
She has had the honor of serving the academic, speech, and language needs in North Texas for 7 years and counting. During this time, some of her best experiences have been tutoring refugee minors, creating a non-profit literacy outreach program for housing-insecure families, and working as an SLP Assistant while completing her master’s degree.
Maddy loves working at Link2Speech for its positive and collaborative professional environment. She is thankful for her supportive colleagues who constantly encourage her to follow her dream of serving children and families experiencing feeding and swallowing challenges. Maddy understands first-hand from experiences with her son the stress and anxiety associated with feeding challenges.
Since food is a large part of how we socialize and share family traditions and values, it can be scary and isolating for families of children with feeding challenges. Maddy hopes to empower these families to overcome the obstacles associated with feeding challenges through exceptional therapy techniques that best match the needs of their child. By teaming up with families to provide personalized caregiver training, encouragement, and evidence-based treatment, Maddy aims to ensure she does her part in supporting the mission at Link2Speech.
Maddy is a proud wife and mother. She moved to Denton 10 years ago with her husband, Eric Johnson. They immediately fell in love with the community and the awesome people in Denton. The two lovebirds are happily raising their 7-year-old Wheaten Terrier, Rhubarb, and their 2-year-old son, Edmund. Her little family fills her heart with joy!
She loves spending her weekends with her family making priceless memories. Sharing pancakes, taking long walks, and playing together at North Lakes Park are just a few of the things she looks forward to enjoying with family. Maddy and her family hope to complete their first Turkey Trot 5K this Fall and would love for you to join them!
