Charity is originally from CT, but grew up in New Hampshire. She returned to CT in 2000 for college, and currently resides in Monroe with her husband (married in 2011) and three children (A son born in 2012 and identical twin daughters born in 2017). Charity works part time as a Speech-Language Pathologist for the CT Birth to Three system. She thinks it's the best of both worlds because she gets to work in a job she loves (and needs to pay off those hefty grad school loans!) and be home a few days a week with her children. Charity enjoys theatre, and brings her son often. She's also a big fan of coffee, reality TV, and essential oils. You can follow her personal blog at:

I thought I’d be better at this. One thing’s for certain, I’m not a patient person. I envy those who are. Those people who can get stopped at all the red lights day after day...

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

If you’ve read my bio or my recent blog post, you know I’m a speech-language pathologist. But what exactly is that? When my mom suggested I should become one way back when I was...
