About Us

Veronica "Roni" Pinch is the owner and founder of Speech W.I.S.E., Inc. Roni founded Speech W.I.S.E. Inc. in 2003 to offer excellent speech and language services to children in the Charlotte area. Roni has always dreamt of owning her own practice and after several years with the public school system, it was time for her to begin her company! In the public school system, there were so many restrictions on qualifying a child for services based on "test scores". At Speech W.I.S.E., Inc. it is a team and family decision determining whether or not a child needs speech-language services by looking at the "entire child" and how speech therapy can help children become more successful communicators in their school settings, at home and with their peers. Roni has over ten years of experience in the public and private school settings working with children in their homes, schools and day cares. Roni is married to Mark and they have two small children, Emmi and Owen.
