Ranae is our Wexford/McCandless Facility Director and Speech Pathologist. Born in Pittsburgh she went on to study speech and language at Duquesne University. She has been instrumental in the start-up and growth of her office and is grateful she becomes more experienced every day.

When she is not working, Ranae likes traveling, running, cooking, spending time with friends and family, and shopping. She is also in a bowling league but claims to be “not very good.”

At age four, Ranae knew she wanted to be some kind of a “teacher” when her parents bought her a Sesame Street Sign Language book. As a senior in high school she toured Duquesne University’s Speech and Language clinic and knew she found her true passion.  “Kids keep me on my toes! They are fun and energetic. It is rewarding getting to see their language grow and develop.”
