Interview with Lily

Tell us about yourself

My name is Lily Smith, and I am originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have been a speech therapist at TEAM 4 Kids for almost three years now. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends while doing anything outside. I enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, reading and finding new restaurants.

Why did you become a speech-language pathologist?

I became an SLP because I always wanted to help others in some way. Helping children find their voice and build upon their language skills has always fulfilled me.

Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being positive?

I think my coworkers may have nominated me as a positive person, because I try my best to find the good in difficult situations.

What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?

My favorite thing about working at TEAM 4 Kids is watching the progress my children make. I am so lucky to work with such amazing kids and families each and every day.

If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?

If I could have one wish, it would be to win a ticket to explore the world.
