Randi graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Anthropology. She earned a Master of Science in Speech- Language Pathology from Nova Southeastern University. Prior to obtaining her Master’s degree, Randi worked as a private nanny for a family of a child with special needs, which is where her true passion for becoming a speech- language pathologist began. In addition, she taught a variety of courses in grades K- 12 at a local private school in Savannah. She has served both pediatric and adult populations in the school system and skilled nursing setting, and her experience includes a wide range of speech and language disorders including articulation/phonological disorders, receptive/expressive language disorders, dysphagia management, and fluency disorders. She is very passionate and has extensive training in the assessment and implementation of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) gained through graduate level training and attendance of workshops hosted by Tobii Dynavox and Lingraphica. She hopes to increase her knowledge in this area by attending hands on training sessions to reach a more diverse population of clients who have difficulty communicating. Randi is from the Savannah area, but she now resides in Effingham county with her husband, daughter, son, and 2 labs. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family and taking long walks through Target.
