About Me


My name is Mrs. George and I am Alton Central’s Speech-Language Pathologist.  While this is only my second year at ACS, I have been in the field of speech and language for 25 years.  I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees at the University of New Hampshire and then went on to earn a second graduate degree at Nova Southeastern University.     


I became interested in this field because I love language!  Throughout my career, I have worked with preschool through high school children.  I also work with adults at a local skilled nursing facility.  I love being an SLP because I have the opportunity to work with people of all ages (birth through adulthood) on becoming better communicators (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) as well as other areas!  


I live with my husband and our three Bernese Mountain Dogs.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, cooking, and interior design.  I am involved in our regional Bernese Mountain Dog club and also enjoy dog training and competing in conformation (dog shows) and obedience trials.
