Mrs. Wims

I am one of the two Speech and Language Pathologists (SLPs) at Patriots STEM Elementary School.  I am originally from Indiana, but I have also worked in Illinois and Iowa before moving to North Carolina in 2016.  My family settled down in the Charlotte area in 2017.  I enjoy traveling, watching movies, and discovering great restaurants with my husband and our nine year old daughter, and going for walks with our Goldendoodle, Cocoa.

During my 20+ years as a Speech and Language Pathologist, I have worked with children and adults with a wide variety of speech and language impairments.  I have worked in the medical setting, private practice, and community settings; however, I have enjoyed the majority of my career working with children in the school setting. This is my third year at Patriots, and it is a pleasure greeting returning students and welcoming new students every year! I look forward to continued collaboration with families as we support OUR children in reaching their full communication potential! 

  • I am at Patriots STEM Elementary Mondays through Fridays 7:45am-3:15pm.
