Julie Bending, M.S., CCC-SLP/L


Julie received her Bachelor and Master’s degree from University of Wisconsin-River Falls. She was inspired by the story of Helen Keller as a young girl and was enthralled by Anne Sullivan and how she made such an impact in someone else’s life. Because of this powerful story, Julie was lead to the field of Speech Language Pathology-and LOVES what she does.

Whenever she gets the chance, Julie likes to spend time with her family and friends. Whether she is riding her bike with her husband, reading the latest and greatest research in the field, volunteering in the community or cheering at her kids’ sporting event- she loves to have fun! The same applies to her approach to working with children. Upbeat and invested in their well-being, she is ready and willing to help you tackle any concern. Within the culture of Pediatric Interactions, she appreciates taking each child to their highest level of development through supplementary resources and team collaboration to uniquely meet their needs.

Julie is grateful to learn from the kids she works with, as she says "each child has a special gift to offer us".
