Growing Because of Connections with Sherley Jackson (A Grow Your Private Practice Case Study)

Growing Because of Connections with Sherley Jackson - A Grow Your Private Practice Case Study

Thinking about leaving your job and going all-in on your private practice? 

It’s a big decision and it can be intimidating, but it could change your life. In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with one of my Grow Your Private Practice Students, Sherley Jackson, to talk about her decision to go full-time with her practice as well as hiring, referrals, and so much more. 

Sherley L. Jackson is a Speech-Language Pathologist certified by the American Speech-Language Association and licensed by the Georgia Department of Education and Board of Speech & Language Pathology.  

With 22 years of experience in the field (in Louisiana, Florida, and North Carolina), 20 of which have been in the public school system, working with PK through 5th-grade students in special education programs. 

Sherley earned a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science degree in Audiology and Speech Pathology from Florida State University. She earned a specialist degree in Special Education from the University of West Georgia. 

Her primary concentrations include early language development and articulation/phonological delays. Sherley engages in multicultural issues, IEP coaching and development, and new parent training on facilitating language development in everyday home activities. Sherley is recognized as a Hanen Certified Speech-Language Pathologist and a Master IEP Coach with Catherine Whitcher, M.Ed.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

  • How Sherley got started with her private practice
  • How she was able to fill her caseload so quickly
  • The benefits of having a community when running a practice
  • How becoming systems-focused helped Sherley grow
  • Tips for finding the right hire
  • When Sherley decided to go all-in with her practice
  • Sherley’s plans for growth in the future


I hope you found this episode inspiring. I love how Sherley said that if that seed is in you to start a private practice, then that’s what you should be doing. If it’s been planted, it’s not going anywhere! You just have to take those steps to make it happen.
