Mrs. Leigh Ann Mellichamp

My name is Leigh Ann Mellichamp and I have been a school-based Speech-Language Pathologist for 23 years.  I graduated from Columbia College in 1996 with a BA degree in Speech-Language Pathology and continued my education to receive a Master's of Speech Pathology from the University of South Carolina in 1998. I am licensed as a Speech-Language Pathogist in the state of South Carolina and maintain my Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) through the American Speech-language Hearing Association (ASHA). I currently live in Camden with my husband and three children. I love animals, spending time with my family, and camping.I look forward to working with our students and teachers here at Camden Elementary School as we  "Gallop to Greatness" with good communication skills!
