CARING. IT’S IN OUR DNA.
Chief Program Development Officer
Theresa Grant brings her particular brand of expertise to TalkPath Live as head of our program development initiatives. Prior to her current position, she served as Chief Development Officer of Specialized Education Services, Inc.

A longtime educator and program manager, Theresa began her career in special education in 1985 as the co-owner/operator (with her husband) of an independent school for students with special needs. After the school was acquired in 2001, she stayed on as Program Director, earning a series of well-deserved promotions as she segued her informed skill set into the field of business development. Now developing business for TPL, Theresa excels at combining her educational insight with her talent for program development and says her favorite parts of her job include liaising with prospective clients and sharing vital information about our mission and our goals on behalf of individuals with therapeutic needs.

Director of Clinical Affairs
Tracey Davis, MOT, OTR/L, earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1998 and her master’s degree in occupational therapy in 1999. She has been working in pediatrics since that time, in all settings. She entered the telehealth field in 2013 and began work on her doctorate of health sciences in 2015. She was among the first occupational therapists to begin providing telehealth services and now teaches continuing education classes and guest lectures at universities on the subject. She has significant experience working with children with dyslexia, sensory processing differences, and adopted children who come from trauma backgrounds. Tracey has a passion for helping families access the therapy they need, and telehealth is the perfect answer to that dilemma. In her role at TalkPath Live, Tracey supports therapists by providing clinical guidance, best practices, and mentoring. She uses her expertise to create informational materials and educate potential clients, as well as to offer support to schools using TPL’s services. She volunteers in the policy workgroup of the Telerehabilitation Special Interest Group for the American Telemedicine Association, advocating for licensure portability so more families can access services. When she is not working, you can find her homeschooling three of her four children, working on her 30-acre homestead with her pilot husband, running trails in southern Ohio, or dreaming up her next big project, always with a hot cuppa in her hands.
Coordinator of Clinical Affairs: Speech Therapy
Renee White, MA, CCP-SLP, is a veteran speech therapist, with 25+ years of experience in her field. A North Carolina native, she earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in communication disorders from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and Appalachian State University, respectively, after which she served in several prestigious positions that honed her skill set and expanded her areas of expertise. Her background includes roles as speech pathologist for the Eastside Medical Center and the Gwinnett Medical Center (both in Georgia) and lead speech therapist for the ADAPT program of Gwinnett Public Schools (also in Georgia), where, she says, she found her home in a functional life skills program for young adults with disabilities. Additionally, Renee has been the co-owner of Kidsplay Therapy Center, a pediatric rehabilitation clinic, and the owner/operator of Contemporary Therapy Solutions, providing services for special education students in North Carolina Public Schools. Every day at work, she learns new lessons that enrich her home life with her husband and three sons. Aptly nicknamed “Sunshine,” Renee takes pride in thinking that’s the kind of person she is and what she wants to bring to the world.
