Gina Rowland, M.S. CCC-SLP
Gina has been a practicing speech language pathologist for 16 years. She received her Bachelors of Science Degree in Speech and Hearing from Elmira College and her Masters of Science Degree in Speech Language Pathology from Syracuse University. Prior to joining Advanta Therapy, Gina worked in a wide variety of settings, including: acute hospital rehabilitation, residential facilities, preschool programs, early intervention, school systems, nursing homes and home health. Gina enjoys working at Advanta Therapy because it provides a wide variety of experiences on a daily basis. “When I was working with adults exclusively, I missed working with children and vice versa. I really enjoy the diversity and skill sets needed to see a 2 year old child in the morning and then a 92 year old adult in the afternoon!” Gina is very excited about bringing the concept of group therapy for language deficits for both children and adults to the Franklin County area. In addition, she has a particular interest in treating young children with dysphagia and feeding issues. “I see the area of dysphagia in the pediatric population as a need, and we are very excited to bring those particular skills and experiences to our community.” For more information, contact Gina at gina@advantatherapy.com.

Adam Rowland, M.S. CCC-SLP
Adam first became interested in the field of speech language pathology after working as an aide for a language based toddler therapy group. “The response of those children to the speech language pathologist was amazing; you could see these wonderful 2 year olds learning and growing their language skills each week!” He had been working in the business field for several years after receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree from Hamilton College. After his experience with the toddler group, Adam then returned school to earn his Master of Science degree in Speech Language Pathology from Syracuse University. He has experience working in early intervention, preschool and school aged children, rehabilitation facilities, and skilled nursing facilities. Adam created Advanta Therapy with a simple idea: “Serve the community – no matter what the age.” His focus is on early intervention, but he enjoys the challenge of a diverse caseload each day. In the near future, Adam would like to start a language based play group and offer a feeding therapy program. Contact him at adam@advantatherapy.com.
