“Setting Yourself Apart” with Kristi Jackley, SLP


Here’s what they talk about: 

  • How she sets her private practice apart from school-provided therapy
  • Her most successful referral sources to ensure future work for herself and her independent contractors
  • Jena’s insight into the importance of a shared work culture
  • Her unique delegation of responsibilities which has considerably improved her work-life balance
  • Her belief in maintaining a broad network of therapists of multiple disciplines


Guest: Kristi Jackley, SLP

Kristi developed extensive experience as a school SLP though she often dreamed of starting her own multidisciplinary practice. She slowly built her practice from a few clients to a full-time business as of 2013. She currently contracts with 6 other clinicians. Her practice specializes in primarily pediatric services, with autism as a significant focus.
