Meet The Staff
Paige Faulder, M.S., CCC-SLP, LSLS Cert. AVT has been working as a Speech-Language Pathologist for over 8 years. Paige began her career at Cook Children’s Medical Center. During her time at Cook, she developed a passion for the hearing impaired population with intervention focusing specifically on developing listening and spoken language skills in infants and children in a family-centered approach. She was a member of the Cochlear Implant Team at Cook and collaborated with ENTs, audiologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists and social workers routinely to ensure the delivery of consistent, high-quality patient care. Paige attended the AEI (Alabama Ear Institute) Summer Institute as well as the TCU (Texas Christian University) Listening and Spoken Language Summer Institute, both intensive 2-week training courses consisting of lecture and hands-on practice using Auditory-Verbal techniques and strategies. In 2011, she became a Listening and Spoken Language Specialist, Certified Auditory-Verbal Therapist (LSLS Cert. AVT). In addition to providing direct AVT services at Cook, Paige also supervised graduate student interns, clinical fellows and new hires and in 2012-2013, served as the Rehab Services Clinic Lead. Currently, in addition to being a member of the Monkey Mouths team, she is also a Clinical Supervisor at the Davies School of Communication Sciences & Disorders at TCU. Paige supervises graduate speech-language pathology student clinicians providing family-centered intervention to children with hearing impairments under the direction of Emily Lund, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Assistant Professor. She strongly believes that active parent participation and parent coaching in therapy sessions are key components to successful listening and spoken language outcomes. Paige and her husband, Chase, have a young son and daughter. They love spending time together as family especially when it involves cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs!
Lindsey Getske, M.S., CCC-SLP joined the Monkey Mouths team in March 2017. Before joining Monkey Mouths, Lindsey earned her B.A. in Speech and Hearing Sciences from the University of New Mexico and her M.S. in Speech Language Pathology from Texas Tech University Health Science Center. She has worked with Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) and worked almost 3 years in another pediatric outpatient clinic in the DFW area. Lindsey has received training in Deborah Beckman's Oral Motor Training, Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) level one, Sound Card System, and Nancy Kaufman Apraxia System. Lindsey enjoys using simple American Sign Language (ASL) and visual cueing to increase opportunities for effective communication. Lindsey believes there is nothing more rewarding than watching a client's progress, whether it be using a word/sign/picture to communicate consistently or being able to produce the “l” in lion for the first time. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, working out, and exploring the DFW area.

Jamie has received extensive training in autism with the Social Communication Emotional Regulation and Transactional Support model (SCERTS). She believes successful speech and language therapy includes effective collaboration among the SLP, the family, and all other service professionals. Jamie enjoys spending time with her husband, Lyndon, two sons, and their dog.
