Courtney Hunt, MA, CCC-SLP

Speech & Language Pathologist


Courtney has been working in the field of speech-language pathology since 2015, however is new to BRAINS beginning in June 2023. She spent the majority of her career working in the public school setting, first as a speech pathologist assistant (SLPA) in the southern suburbs of Nashville, TN before moving back to Michigan to attain her Master’s degree. Courtney then transitioned to the medical setting and spent a year working in outpatient rehabilitation where she gained inexperience in pediatric feeding and dysphagia. Throughout her various experiences, she’s worked with students/patients of all ages (birth to young adulthood) and treated a wide range of speech, language, and feeding disorders. Courtney is PROMPT trained and has experience treating oral myofunctional disorders (OMDs). Courtney’s has goals of becoming a bilingual therapist and getting credentialed as a lactation consultant to further her pediatric and infant feeding background.

Courtney grew up in East Lansing, Michigan (Go green!), but has spent much of her adult life living in the south, including Nashville and Charleston. When she’s not working or studying to further her clinical skills, Courtney enjoys traveling and being outdoors. She loves mountains and beaches, hiking, kayaking, and going anywhere she can bring her two dogs. Jax is a mutt, but looks like Marshall from Paw Patrol, and Dolly is a young golden retriever. Courtney prides herself as being a “fun” therapist and loves to laugh and be silly with her clients. She feels that kids learn best when they don’t even realize that they are working because therapy is so fun! She enjoys providing education to parents and empowering parents and caregivers to help their children reach their full potential.
