Career Change to Perfect Fit with Beth Chaput, CCC-SLP


What we discuss: 

  • How Beth balances her life – between her family, her “regular” job and now her private practice to maintain flexibility in her life
  • What she learned by joining another private practice before starting her own
  • Jena’s three recommendations for how to successfully market your private practice
  • How she got her first clients (and a fun tip to try if you’re using flyers to market your services!)
  • Beth’s innovative plan for summer services

Guest: Beth Chaput, CCC-SLP
I am a licensed speech-language pathologist practicing since 2010.  I received my Masters degree from Worcester State University in speech-language pathology after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Lesley University.

After several years of practicing speech-language pathology in a number of different school environments, I became increasingly aware of the need for literacy training and evidence-based interventions for children with reading challenges.  In 2016, after a year-long training program and over 100 hours of supervised tutoring in the Orton-Gillingham approach, I received my Structured Literacy/Dyslexia Interventionist status through the International Dyslexia Association.
