Therapists & Staff

Carey Van Fleet Jones


Education: Masters of Science, Certificate of Clinical Competence (ASHA), licensed by the State of Florida and Orton-Gillingham trained.

I have lived in beautiful Ocala for over 25 years and love the small town feel.

I graduated from the University of South Florida with a Bachelors of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders.

I began working at that time in the Pasco County School System working with ages birth to 3 and elementary age children with speech, language and hearing disorders.

During this time I attended Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ during my summers (a beautiful and amazing part of the country to visit) and graduated with honors with a Masters of Science in Communication Sciences and disorders.

My husband, Rodney Jones, and I then moved back to Ocala where I began working at MRMC Speech and Hearing Center. During my time there I became more interested in literacy and reading development . The Orton-Gillingham approach to reading became a big interest of mine as I saw how it could drastically change a way a child reads, spells and writes. I then decided to become trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach so I could help children become successful readers.

I love what I do and I am thankful each day that God has blessed me with the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life.

I have been a speech language pathologist for quite a few years. I earned my bachelors’ degree from Florida State University (1973) and years later my Masters’ degree (2000) from East Tennessee State University where I was also inducted into two honor societies: Phi Kappa Phi and Gamma Beta Phi. My husband was an officer in the Air Force so we moved around quite a bit. I was fortunate enough to be able to work in my chosen field in many different states as well as for the Department of Defense overseas in the United Kingdom.

I work in the public school system full time and devote after hours at Gifts. At the present, I am working toward becoming certified in working with students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Understanding the incredible and intricate intelligences these wonderful students possess is an ongoing process. Discovering their magnificence, while working with their delays, are the constant challenges.
