Provider Type: Speech-Language Pathologist, Coppell Clinical Director
Location: Coppell

I’m K. DeAnn Place, M.S., CCC-SLP, MBA-HM and I joined Monkey Mouths in 2021 as a speech-language pathologist. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Dallas and my master's degree from the University of North Texas. I also have an MBA in Healthcare Management from Western Governors University. Prior to Monkey Mouths, I worked in private practice, school and home health settings, as well as in Early Childhood Intervention.

I love helping a child find his/her voice! It is my desire to give families the tools they need to help their child communicate successfully. To be successful with speech therapy, the speech-language pathologist (SLP) and the family must be a team with the same goals in mind.

In my spare time I enjoy reading (love cozy mysteries), spending time with my crazy cockapoo – Carson, and spending time with my husband and stepson.

As an SLP with over 16 years of experience, I have training and specialization in the following:

  • Sound Card System
