About Me

My name is Sarah Breshears. I am an ASHA-certified SLP who has worked in a wide variety of settings including schools, hospitals, adult outpatient, inpatient rehab, and private practice! I’m the biggest fan of this field and believe in what we do with my whole heart.

I grew up in Oklahoma. I graduated from OSU with my bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Family Science: Child and Family Services. I completed  my master’s degree at the University of Oklahoma in Speech- Language Pathology where I was blessed with the opportunity to complete rotations in hospital, private practice, school, and pediatric inpatient settings along with our university clinic. I loved the opportunity to learn something new and find new challenges with each new setting. While I  have a degree from and love for both schools, I am a Sooner at heart!  Boomer!

 After grad school, I wanted to move somewhere that I didn't know anyone after growing up in the tiny place that Oklahoma comes to be. I chose Nashville because of my love for music and its "small town in a big city" vibe. (I’m smitten with Music City!) 

As a new grad working in the public school system, there was not many resources available for new materials. I stumbled upon a freebie from Teachers Pay Teachers. After spending way too much time hopping from one store to the next and looking through all of the beautiful materials available, I decided I'd try my hand at it. I never imagined it would turn into all that it has. I love creating materials that go into other clinics and classrooms and help you to help your kiddos. I love connecting with the other SLPs that share my passion for this field who are excited about the materials that they've created to help others as well. TpT has been one huge blessing for me and originally led me to create this blog. 

After about 3 years in Nashville, I decided to try my hand at travel therapy! I spent the summer of 2017 living in Washington State working in acute care and outpatient settings. It was by far one of the best summers of my life! I’ve always had a passion for traveling and I LOVED the opportunity to combine that passion with my love of SLP. It was my plan to travel for at least two years, but God had a different plan for me. (And I like to give Him credit for knowing best for me.)

I spent just shy of three years at a hospital in my home town of Tulsa covering acute with occasional coverage in IPR. Acute is definitely my passion and the reason I became an SLP. However, in light of the pandemic, and the need for new challenges and opportunities, I've recently returned to the travel world. Destin, Florida is currently home where I'm working in a school and PRN at a hospital and IPR. I'm looking forward to learning more about trauma and getting my FEES competencies completed. I feel so blessed to be in a field that allows so much variety!

Here you'll find my experience as a traveler, therapy ideas to keep your patients on their toes, crafts, giveaways, and a few rambling thoughts from this SLP. I hope to help keep you inspired and share my love of all things SLP.
