Hi! I am Dr. Cherelle R. Simmons Chin, a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), Manifestation Coach, and Social Entrepreneur! I was born and raised in the city of Philadelphia, PA. I earned both my Bachelor and Master of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the illustrious, Hampton University in 2012 and 2014, respectively. Shortly after graduation, I left Virginia and fulfilled my childhood dream of moving to Florida. This is where I earned my Doctorate in Speech-Language Pathology from Nova Southeastern University.
After 10 years of experience in the field of Speech-Language Pathology, I have had the opportunity to work with clients of all ages in a variety of settings. With experience in public schools, skilled nursing facilities, home health, clinics, and teletherapy; I have treated a multitude of diseases and disorders. I have worked with individuals with developmental delay, Autism, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimers, Dementia, Aphasia, Dysphagia, Speech impairment, Language Impairment, Stroke, and More. I have also received training in Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) and I am certified in Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES-Vital Stim). I am also a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence for SLPs.
I received my certification as a professional life coach in early 2021. I truly believe this was a natural next step in my career after being a mentor and coach for my clients and their families for years. Over the years I have undergone a significant spiritual journey that has led me to where I am today. I have created the life of my dreams and now I get the opportunity to coach others into creating the life of their dreams!
Currently, I live in sunny Southwest Florida with my family. Of all my accomplishments, being “mom” is the most important to me. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, dancing, learning, and creating. I am passionate about helping others through my therapy, coaching, and GIVING. To serve my personal mission of helping Black girls and young women in need, I founded GIVING Inc. in 2017. I have spent the last several years using my life experiences and skills to build the foundation to what can best be described as all of my passions realized, through GIVING INC.
