Mallory Millet is a mom of 3 under the age of 4, all who experienced feeding difficulties in some capacity. As a speech-language pathologist by trade, she always enjoyed working with swallowing and swallowing disorders, but with the birth of her children, her passion in working with pediatric dysphagia grew exponentially. She has worked in an outpatient clinic setting for the past 6 years increasing her feeding and swallowing knowledge while also empowering caregivers along the way during their infant feeding journeys.
