Marcus NealSpeech - Language Pathologist, CEO, Owner
Marcus is the sole owner and Executive Director of MLee Therapy and The Children’s Therapy SPOT. He moved to Austin in 2000 from El Paso, TX. He immediately fell in love with the city and its vibe. When not working, you can probably find Marcus doing yard work, spending time with his better half Marian, his daughter Madeleine, their Miniature Schnauzer, Maggi (yes, without the “e”), or perusing the aisles of Home Depot. Marcus is an avid fan of all things Longhorns and can be spotted at several Longhorn sporting events throughout the year.
Marcus’s spark and passion for providing high-quality therapy to the children and families of Austin stem from his own experience with having a sibling with a disability. His brother Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, still serves as the catalyst for all Marcus does to help provide compassionate and quality therapy services, to this day!!
