Better Hearing & Speech Month Feature: Tracy Casey, CCC-SLP
Tracy Casey is a speech language pathologist at Pearl River County Hospital and Nursing Home in Poplarville, Mississippi. She is a native and current resident of Picayune, Mississippi. Tracy attended Picayune Memorial High School and went on to receive her Bachelor of Science in Environmental Policy from The University of Michigan. Tracy achieved her Masters of Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of South Carolina.
In addition to being nationally certified through the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), Tracy is also certified in VitalStim. VitalStim is a safe and effective treatment for those suffering from swallowing difficulties. Using electrical stimulation to the swallowing muscles strengthens them, and this technique coupled with other swallowing exercise is incredibly beneficial to the patient.
Tracy has a daughter, Katelyn, and when she is not treating patients, she enjoys serving as a 4H shooting sports instructor. We appreciate you, Tracy, and we are so thankful for the difference you make in the lives of your patients each day!
