Margie Domnick brings more than twenty years of experience to Heartspring’s speech-language pathology team. She has worked in a variety of settings including private clinics, public schools, and home-based early intervention services. Margie received specialized instruction during that time as well, and is trained in The Association Method, Picture Exchange Communication System, Lindamood and has extensive experience in metaphonological therapies. In addition, she wrote and published a book, Everybody Has Something, to introduce young children to diversity and to promote acceptance of all people. She got the idea for her book from watching each of her four children struggle with issues that made them feel different.
Margie came to Heartspring “to be a leader and innovator” as our mission statement reads. She was ready for a new challenge and was impressed by Heartspring’s progressive reputation. She is excited for the opportunity to work with leaders in their respective fields and to be part of a stellar group of speech language pathologists she can learn from and share ideas with. She’s happy she chose to make the move to Heartspring.
Margie enjoys ‘giving back’ to her community both professionally and personally. She currently serves on the Kansas Special Health Services Family Advisory Council, which provides guidance and feedback regarding program development and policy changes that affect the special healthcare needs communities in Kansas. In the past, Margie served on the Autism Team for all schools in her district and was a member of the Strategic Intervention Team for two elementary schools. She currently is actively involved with several speech-language pathology groups. Margie organizes an annual fundraiser in support of the Inherited Metabolic Disease clinic that serves her son, Jack, who was born with Phenylketonuria (PKU). She rides with Jack’s medical team in a 100+ mile bike ride every July in the Rocky Mountains. Needless to say, she enjoys biking. She also enjoys writing and watching movies.
Margie holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Sciences and Disorders and a Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology, both from Wichita State University.
