Kelsey Rose Brown
My name is Kelsey Brown and I am a second year Pre-Communication Sciences and Disorders major at The University of Georgia from Lexington, Kentucky. I am intending to get a certificate in Educational Psychology and Instructional Technology.
After receiving both undergraduate and graduate degrees, I plan on practicing Speech-Language Pathology, while also pursuing an interest in arts integration with therapy and education. This interest has grown from my own internship experiences working in music therapy as well as theatre for young audiences.
My personal hobbies include musical theatre, drama, music, art, and crafting, along with traveling, reading Children's literature, and working with young people.
