Allied Rehab staff keeps updated CPR certifications. Here we are in action renewing our certifications last night:
Elizabeth Yopp, MS, CCC-SLP graduated from Appalachian State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders and a Master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology. She helps with articulation and language challenges as well as dysfluency and stuttering. Elizabeth concentrated on Spanish language communication in her undergraduate coursework, and has since had the opportunity to travel to Ecuador and continue her Spanish education and clinical experience. She has served as a bilingual therapist in several settings, and has a passion for working with Spanish-speaking children and their families to promote language development. In her spare time, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her cat, reading everything she can get her hands on, and working with children at her church.

She then attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where she received her Master’s of Arts in Speech Language Pathology. Courtney has experience working with children of all ages providing speech and language intervention in the clinic setting. She also has experience working with adults who have speech and swallowing difficulties following treatment for head and neck cancer. Courtney loves the challenge of tailoring each therapy session to meet the patient’s individual needs. In her free time, Courtney enjoys reading and doing anything outside. She currently lives in North Raleigh with her husband and her dog.
