Ms. Karen Fisher Rowland
I have been a Speech Language Pathologist since 1991. I received my undergraduate degree from Appalachian State University and Master's degree from UNC-G. I have worked in several settings such as Head Start, the NC School for the Deaf, private practice and since 1998 I have been the Speech Therapist here at Southern Elementary School. I have enjoyed being part of such a tight knit community where I have met so many wonderful families and am now finding myself working with the children of my previous speech students.
I am the mother of an amazing daughter named Stephanie, who just got married in June. She is currently working at the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine as their Pediatric Neurogenetic Research Coordinator. I am an avid animal lover and have been mom to several Pomeranians. I have also been "grandma" to guinea pigs, hamsters, cats and hedgehogs. I love watching reality TV and collecting bears.
