Fun Fact:

Emily and Chloe have known each other for almost 12 years! Both are Dothan natives and during their teen and young adult years traveled along very similar paths... even though it wasn't planned! They played softball together during their high school years and were sorority sisters at Auburn. Both became Speech-Language Pathologists and once even worked at the same private clinic! Now, they have children who are also the exact same ages! Both Emily and Chloe had independently dreamed of offering a unique take on speech therapy services, so it seems their professional paths were destined to collide. Emily and Chloe are thrilled to launch Circle City Speech in their beloved hometown of Dothan and offer hassle free mobile speech services to families in the Wiregrass area!
