Sharon C. Jordan is the Founder and Executive Director of Speech Tactics, PC. In 2012, Sharon formed Speech Tactics with the intent of providing speech therapy services to only a hand full of private clients outside of her full-time job as a medical speech-language pathologist, specializing in laryngectomy care and rehabilitation. Although Sharon thoroughly enjoyed working with her adult laryngectomy patients in the hospital sector, she always knew her true passion and purpose was for helping children reach their full potential and realize the beauty in their uniqueness. By 2014, she was basically working two jobs as her pediatric clientele grew steadily. Sharon struggled daily with the decision to leave her adult laryngectomy patients and follow her passion to work with kids. She eventually resigned from the hospital position and immediately immersed herself into the lives of the children and families she served while providing home-based speech therapy in Mecklenburg County. Early Intervenion and Autsim is Sharon’s first love in the field of speeech-language pathology!
Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Sharon is the second child of four siblings who grew up in a very large, loving, and supportive family. With both her parents working as mail carriers, Sharon saw firsthand what hard work, partnership, and perseverance look like. From her humble beginnings and deeply-rooted values cultivated by her family, Sharon’s moral compass guides her thinking and her decisions from a place of humility, integrity, empathy, and compassion.
Sharon’s first lessons in generosity and kindness would come from her parents, both of whom worked for the post office. Each Christmas holiday, her parents would use the monetary gifts they received from the generous residents on thier mail routes, to buy presents for other children who were less fortunate. After many years of watching her parents practice unconditional generosity, it became a way of thinking and living for Sharon. This is where she began to cultivate her people-first attitude.
Years later, those are the same values and virtues that help shape Sharon into the leader she is today. Growing up in a city infused with many different cultures, ethnicities, and languages, Sharon has fostered an inherent appreciation for diversity and compassion for people from all walks of life.
When Sharon is not leading her dynamic team of bilingual and monolingual therapists, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She loves reading books about history, human behavior, and personal growth. Sharon is an intuitive thought leader whose visionary gifts have propelled Speech Tactics from a 200sf room to a 6,000sf multi-disciplinary clinic within the span of 6 years. She embraces the journey of leadership, and shows up each day ready to face new challenges that will ascend the Speech Tactics organization to higher levels of excellence!
