Established in 2023, Live Well Speech Therapy is specifically designed to serve adults with speech, voice, swallowing, and cognitive deficits. Its aim is to provide exceptional services to patients through evidence-based treatment, innovative methods, and person-centered care.

Live Well Speech Therapy emerged in response to a heartfelt request from a patient diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. This patient, residing in a skilled nursing facility, sought out Jackie, a dedicated speech therapist, for specialized treatment. He expressed his prior disappointment with speech therapy that lacked Parkinson’s-specific expertise.
Jackie’s commitment to her patients led her to invest her personal resources in becoming certified in SpeakOut, a specialized voice treatment for Parkinson’s. Her dedication to meeting this patient’s unique needs served as the catalyst for the inception of Live Well Speech Therapy.
During her training, Jackie actively engaged with a Parkinson’s support group, where she encountered several individuals seeking speech therapy services. Recognizing the unmet demand for specialized care among adults with limited mobility in Utah County, she took the initiative to establish Live Well Speech Therapy.
Throughout her academic career, Jackie graduated with her Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Language and Literature/Letters from Brigham Young University-Hawaii. She then went on to earn her Master’s Degree in Education from Chaminade University of Honolulu in 2006, and her Master of Science Degree in Communication Disorders from the University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2018.
Her career has spanned a variety of settings, beginning with the UH Speech and Hearing Clinic, where she earned the Outstanding Clinician Award for her work with a client with a traumatic brain injury. Jackie worked with the pediatric population at two rural elementary schools on the North Shore of Oahu before relocating to Utah where she expanded her professional repertoire in the sub-acute, post-acute, skilled nursing facility, and outpatient settings.
Holding a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Jackie is licensed as a Speech-Language Pathologist by the State of Utah.
Having found her greatest passion in serving adults and their families, she has seen her patients remarkably increase their capacity to live well by incorporating excellent speech and swallow therapy with healthy life routines prioritizing good sleep, a balanced diet, stress management, and socialization.
In addition to her core qualifications, Jackie is a certified provider of VitalStim® therapy, a cutting-edge neuromuscular electrical stimulation treatment. This therapeutic approach harnesses the power of low-level electrical impulses to stimulate and fortify the muscles essential for the process of swallowing.
Speech-language pathology is a field of expertise practiced by a clinician known as a speech-language pathologist (SLP) or a speech therapist. SLPs treat and diagnose speaking disabilities. They help patients with articulation, stuttering, fluency, the rhythm of speech, and more. Additionally, they may treat patients who have difficulty with language and social skills. Patients see SLPs for a variety of reasons, including relearning language after an accident, overcoming a voice disorder, enhancing social communication skills, as well as improving speaking clarity.
