Jen Wood-Brackett, M.A., CCC-SLP

My name is Jen Wood and I'm so grateful to be joining the CSRC team. Prior to coming here, I worked at The Children's Hospital Colorado for over 16 years. During my time at Children's I led many Hanen groups, served on our Autism team as the Neurodiversity and Parent Education team leads, provided services and trained staff in tongue thrust remediation, and just had a great time serving patients and families in general :) 

I'm originally from Michigan and, contrary to most, am a huge fan of the Midwest (GO BLUE!).   My husband and I will be relocating from Denver to Fort Collins in early June. We look forward to escaping the city to live on 8 acres and savor a slower pace of life with our cat, Puma, and dog, Scout. If you have any favorite hikes or spots in general in FC, please let me know as I'm a total newbie! 

I'm very excited to be part of this wonderful community and look forward to getting to know you all.
