At Communication Junction, we are a team of speech pathologists and early educators that teaches families how to communicate and connect with their children through sign language, so they can develop a lifelong love of learning.
Molly grew up in Bloomington-Normal and attended Augustana College, graduating in 2011 with a Psychology degree. She returned to Bloomington and worked at a local church for 9 years before deciding to stay home with her two boys full time. Molly started as a “CJ mom” with her oldest son when he was 8 months old and has been amazed at how sign language has allowed both of her children to communicate clearly at such a young age, relieving the stress and frustration of the young toddler years. After being in the Communication Junction family as a parent for almost 3 years, Molly is excited to help parents and kids connect and communicate as an instructor!
Caroline is a speech-language pathologist, having graduated with her master’s degree from Eastern Illinois University in 2020. She is licensed through the American Speech and Hearing Association and is pursuing her Early Intervention certification in the State of Illinois. Caroline is a Peoria native and returned to begin her career as a school-based SLP, working with a variety of students. She is passionate about giving her students a voice, which typically looks like singing, playing, and signing during therapy while growing their communication skills. Caroline is excited to share her knowledge of communication and language development and be a part of your family’s CJ journey!
Mary Williams is a Peoria native and graduated from Bradley University in 2017 with a degree in Elementary Education and an ESL endorsement for Pre-k-12th grade. She taught first grade for 3 years and kindergarten for 1 year. She decided to stay at home with her son in 2021 and after attending just a few Stroll + Sign Storytimes, quickly realized how amazing the Communication Junction community truly is! What started out as a fun way to help her connect and communicate with her little one, is now an opportunity to help you and your little ones as well! Mary is excited to be a part of the CJ team!
