Colleen Mitchell

Special Ed/Speech Director

My name is Colleen Mitchell and I am a Speech Language Pathologist. This is my first year with Canyon Rim Academy but I have 23 years of working experience in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals and in my own office in Salt Lake.

I received my Bachelors in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Washington State University and a Masters in Communicative Disorders from Utah State University. Though I can do all speech therapy services, I have specialized in the areas of motor speech disorders with the aide of palatometer technology, social communication disorders and in swallowing disorders.

I served an LDS mission to Madrid Spain and was able to learn the Spanish language. I am married (Ken) and have 2 children, Parker (18) and Ellie (16). I am passionate about hiking, backpacking and spending time exploring outside with my dog.

I am excited to be working with the staff and students at Canyon Rim Academy with the goal to improve the lives of those with communicative difficulties.
