Mrs. Paige West-Smith, MA, CCC-SLP

I am a graduate of Appalachian State University with an undergraduate degree in Music Performance, a Master's degree in Music Performance, and a Master's degree in Communication Disorders.  I have been working as a Speech Language Pathologist with Caldwell County Schools since 2005.  I currently provide therapy at two K-8 schools, Collettsville and Oak Hill.  I also provide speech therapy services in a rehab facility as needed.  I have supervised several graduate clinicians from ASU, as well as SLP Assistant interns from Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute.  I received my Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) in 2006.  I am currently a Board Member at Large for the North Carolina Speech Hearing and Language Association (NCSHLA) and served as Fall Conference Chair in 2014.  I am also a member of the SLP-Assistant Advisory Board.  I am the principal bassoonist with the Western Piedmont Symphony in Hickory, NC and the Symphony of the Mountains in Kingsport, TN.  I have the pleasure of sharing the stage with my husband of 18 years, who is also a musician.
