Growing Fast and Looking Forward to What’s Next with Ebony Green, SLP


Ebony Green, SLP discovered speech-language pathology as a career path while she was employed as a Teach for America corps member. She became an SLP-A soon afterwards and achieved her master’s degree. Eventually, due to her high aspirations and the mentors who helped her along the way, she pursued private practice. Ebony is the owner of a primarily home-health based practice. She employs several therapists and has recently added occupational therapy services.

Here’s What We Discuss:

  • How she came to the realization that SLP was the path for a fulfilling career
  • Her leap into private practice in part thanks to the inspiration she drew from others
  • Her best recommendation on achieving work-life balance at an affordable rate
  • Jena’s inspired commentary on delegation as necessary to pursue income-generating opportunities
  • Her emphasis on collaboration within the community and online
