Our History

Founded in 2000, KatieBug Therapy, Ltd. started out as the independent practice of Marie Ruzicka, MA, CCC-SLP, a speech pathologist. She spent the first half of her clinical practice working in hospitals with an emphasis on swallowing disorders, traumatic brain injury and neurogenic communication disorders. Life changes directed her attention to pediatrics and private practice. It has been the most unexpected and rewarding journey!   It was never her intent to have a “business” and for that reason KatieBug Therapy has grown from the heart.  Marie strives to make decisions based upon best medical practice and the needs of the children and families served.

Having spent much of her career in a team-based rehabilitation setting, Marie strongly values the benefits of a team approach to therapy. Many excellent clinicians have joined Marie in growing the practice to become a busy and well established multidisciplinary pediatric clinic. Our team includes Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational therapists, Physical therapists, therapy technicians and an outstanding administrative support team.

The essence of “family” is also a core value of Marie and KatieBug Therapy. The addition of her daughter, Amanda Ruzicka, to co-manage the clinic has been an amazing gift on so many levels.
