Becky’s expertise is in the areas of Childhood Apraxia, Pediatric feeding and Swallowing, and nonverbal communication. Payne has been practicing speech therapy for over 20-years throughout northern Wisconsin. Most recently, she was employed as the Rehabilitation Manager at Marshfield Medical Center Ladysmith in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. In addition to her in-clinic experience, she is also the founder and director of Nature’s Edge Therapy Center in Rice Lake. This center provides Speech and Occupational Therapy incorporating animal-assisted therapy, hippotherapy and horticulture therapy to augment traditional therapy on a ranch setting.
Payne says she joined the NorthLakes team because “the people, the mission and values replicate wholeheartedly my passion in the quality of care for the patients they serve.” Payne will be providing speech therapy to children in the Hayward area.
