Chelsea Paulus, MS, CCC-SLP

Founder, Owner and Speech-Language Pathologist


Chelsea founded Connect Speech Therapy in June 2018.  She has grown her small Sheridan-based practice from a local side-business to a dynamic facility serving clients from age 2-20 across the state of Wyoming.  Chelsea is a compassionate and dedicated therapist who genuinely cares about the individual success of each child she meets.  Chelsea's specialties include pediatric speech sound disorders, literacy disorders (including dyslexia), developmental language disorders, pragmatic language, and autism spectrum disorders.  

Chelsea graduated from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio with a master of science in speech-language pathology in 2016.  She is nationally certified with her clinical certificate of competence by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and licensed in Wyoming and California.  Prior to completing her master's degree, Chelsea worked in Soldotna, Alaska, first as an early intervention specialist in a birth-age 3 program and then as a 1st grade teacher.  She worked in education for 3 years before returning to school to complete her master's degree.  She and her husband, Matt, are proud to now call Sheridan home!  When she isn't busy advocating for children with special needs or planning fun new therapy activities, you can find Chelsea at the gym, in the mountains with her two dogs, or in the kitchen creating healthy recipes.

Chelsea is licensed in Wyoming and California.  She is not currently accepting new clients.
