About the Founder
My name is Celeste Roseberry-McKibbin, Ph.D. I am a professor in Sacramento State University’s Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology. I also work directly with 3-18 year old students as a speech-language pathologist in the San Juan Unified School District. University teaching and doing hands-on therapy with kids is the best of both worlds!
Dr. Roseberry-McKibbin received the national Presidential Daily Point of Light Award for her book drive focusing on building the literacy skills of children in poverty. She and her husband Mike and son Mark work as a family to collect and distribute books to these children.
