As a mother, balancing a busy career with virtual home school and family life, Lesley Gattuso Brown knows well the importance of resilience and clear communication. As a pediatric speech-language pathologist, she is committed to helping area children achieve both.

After 11 years at a pediatric clinic, Lesley built NOLA Speech & Language from the ground up, learning to adapt, survive, and persevere with strength and grace. Her practice provides therapy via telehealth, home and office sessions, and in schools across New Orleans, helping children overcome a range of delays and disorders by addressing language, articulation, reading, and processing skills. Additionally, Lesley serves on the fundraising committee of Friends of the New Orleans Public Libraries.
