Mary Pat Reed graduated with her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology (MS-SLP) from the University of North Texas in 2007 and has worked in pediatrics for most of her career. She started in the pediatric medical setting working at Our Children’s House at Baylor/Children’s Hospital in Dallas, TX for six years. She later transitioned to an adjunct faculty member and clinical supervisor in the Speech and Hearing Sciences department at the University of North Texas, where she worked until she established her private practice and provided pediatric assessment and therapy via in-person and teletherapy sessions. She provided professional development and speech-language screenings to area preschools and private schools in the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area.

Reed joined the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) as a part-time Clinical Educator for the MS-SLP Program at the Austin and Dallas, TX campuses for online residencies and virtual clinic in July 2020. In May 2021, she assumed the role of Interim Clinical Coordinator for the MS-SLP virtual clinic and then moved to a full-time University position in January 2022 as the Lead Clinical Educator for the USAHS Pro Bono Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) Teletherapy Clinic.

She now works with graduate students to improve their clinical speech-language skills while serving her community. Through USAHS Pro Bono SLP Teletherapy Clinic, she provides access to speech-language therapy for adults and children across Texas who would not otherwise have the means for services.
