Hello! I’m Patrick Knisely. I’m a speech-language pathologist, but that’s just a fancy way of saying I help children learn to find their voice and use their words to communicate with their world. I’ve always been interested in working with children. I come from a long line of teachers and before I became an SLP I enjoyed a career as an elementary school teacher. I was born and raised on the Great Plains of Nebraska and still enjoy going back to visit the wide open spaces (and my family) every year. I feel so fortunate to have found a home at Bright Beginnings and look forward to meeting all the wonderful kiddos who come to us to find their voices.
