My name is Jason R. Zuch and I was born and raised in upstate New York where I spent most of my life. I had a typical 80's childhood of riding my bike around town unsupervised, sliding down metal slides that were 120 degrees in the sun, and playing Atari or the original Nintendo when I got home. And I loved every minute of it! I got blessed with an amazing family that has continued to grow with 2 brothers and their wives allowing me to have the joy of Nieces and Nephews.
I went to College in Upstate NY for an undergrad in Child Clinical Psychology and was lucky enough to spend a year studying abroad, mainly in London, but also managing some backpacking to a few countries between studies. It was overseas in one of my internships in a school for children with social-emotional needs that I first met and shadowed a Speech Pathologist and from there decided to change careers. I have been doing it ever since across a variety of settings and places including schools, homes, and clinics in several states; though my specialty and focus has been in Early Intervention. My Fiancé and I moved to Raleigh in 2019 to improve her job prospects as a nurse (and get away from the snow), and what a crazy year it has been!
