Ms. Kristin Taipale

Hello! My name is Kristin Taipale and I am a speech language pathologist with the New Richmond School Disctrict. I earned my Bachelor of Science  in Communication Science and Disorders in 2011 from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire. Fortunately, I was able to continue my graduate studies through the same university. I obtained my Master's of Science in Speech Language Pathology in 2013. I joined the wonderful speech/language team back in 2014. YOu may also recognize me as one of the High School Volleyball coaches. I have enjoyed coaching volleyball with the district since 2017. Outside of school I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with my family/dogs and traveling!

Please feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions or concerns with regards to your child's communication skills as I would love to be of assistance to you!
