Our team includes pediatric specialists licensed in physical, occupational and speech & language therapies, audiology, and physical medicine & rehabilitation. Our therapists are specialists that treat only pediatrics.

The ongoing education of our staff is specific to childhood ailments and the best treatment options for these conditions. Several of our therapists are involved in the development of best practice protocols for the treatment of our most common conditions.

Greg

Greg Reber, MS, CCC-SLP

I am originally from Nevada and came to Dixie College after graduating from high school. I served a two-year LDS mission in Brazil, where I learned to speak Portuguese, and later earned a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies at Utah State University. One requirement of my undergraduate program was to complete a study abroad assignment. I chose to attend a Spanish language school in Spain and absolutely loved it. Through these experiences, I learned to love language and communication, which led me to the field of Speech Therapy. I went on to earn my Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology in 2011 at the University of Utah. I enjoy working with children with a variety of diagnoses. I specialize in treating children with hearing impairment, as well as nonverbal children who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices. In my free time, I love traveling, hiking, playing pickleball, and spending time with my wife and our three energetic children.

I attended the College of Eastern Utah where I met my wife and earned an associates degree.  I received a bachelor's degree in exercise science from BYU and a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Utah in 2010.

James

James Stewart, MS, OTR/L

I grew up moving around a lot and have lived in 6 different states. My wife has now helped me to settle down in St George. I have 4 children who keep life interesting and fun. I love to spend time with my family and we are often playing Legos, going on bike rides, singing, dancing, and playing dress up. After serving a 2-year LDS mission to Uruguay where I learned to speak Spanish, I attended Brigham Young University where I received my Bachelors in Special Education in 2012. From there, I learned about the field of occupational therapy and then received my Masters in Occupational Therapy from Touro University Nevada in 2014. I have previously worked in the early intervention (children 0-3 years old) and school district settings. My passion is working with children who struggle with eating and I have been trained in the SOS Approach the Eating. Simply put, I love coming to work each day, and I believe that play is the medium through which all children learn and grow.

Matt

Matthew Edwards, MS, OTR/L

I have been practicing occupational therapy since the year 2000. I can thank my daughter for helping me move into the direction of pediatrics. When I was going to occupational therapy school at the University of South Dakota, we realized my daughter was delayed with developmental milestones and she really helped my studies while in school. I have worked with pediatrics my whole OT career and really enjoy it. I started in Las Vegas working at Sunrise Children’s hospital working both outpatient and inpatient areas. I also had the opportunity to work in the NICU there as well. I moved here in 2002 and helped start the pediatric rehab here at DRMC. I have a wonderful family with my wife and four children. I was born and raised in Provo Utah and met my wife at UVCC (currently UVU). I enjoy playing pickleball, golf, basketball, spikeballKanjam or any other game that happens with my sons. I have recently gotten into mountain biking but will get on my road bike every once in a while. I have also completed 5 marathons (four St. George). I enjoy being with my wife going out to dinner, walks or to the movies.

Stephanie Lister MS, CCC-SLP

I lived all over Southern Idaho and Northern Utah before I settled down in St. George with my husband and three children. We love the outdoors and spend every weekend either hiking or out on the water in our kayaks. My first career was as a voice teacher and opera singer with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Pedagogy from Weber State University. After spending several years singing and having babies, I decided it was time to find a way to bring together my two loves; the human voice and children- so I went back to school. I received both a Bachelors in Communication Disorders and a Masters in Speech Pathology from Utah State University. While in school for my masters degree, my 3-year old daughter started stuttering. I can still remember how worried and panicked we felt when we realized she had a problem. She inspired me to start on my journey to become a stuttering and fluency disorders specialist. I also have experience treating traumatic brain injuries, concussions, and related cognitive disorders thanks to my time working with the Neuro-Specialty Rehab here at Dixie Regional. I love what I do, and I love the children and families I work with.

Kelli Reese MS, CCC-SLP

I was born and raised in northern Utah. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders and Deaf Education and a master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Utah State University. I am a die-hard Aggie fan! When I’m not at work, I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, scuba diving, and anything outside. Southern Utah is gorgeous, and I love being able to explore outside! Before coming to Dixie Regional Outpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation, I worked at a charter school for children with Autism and Early Intervention. I love my job as a Speech-Language Pathologist! My areas of interest are working with infant feeding disorders and speech/language disorders in the 0-3 population. St. George is a wonderful place to be, and I feel grateful to work with the people in our community. My favorite part about my job is getting to work not only with the patient, but their families as well. It is so rewarding to work with families to help children reach new milestones!

Alexa Atkin, MS, CCC-SLP

I grew up in Santa Clara and have always loved southern Utah’s red rocks and sunshine. I received my bachelor’s degree from Dixie State University in psychology where I learned about child development and the benefits of play for early learning. While studying at Dixie, I had the opportunity to volunteer in this pediatric outpatient rehabilitation clinic and witnessed the impact speech therapy can have on individuals and families. This motivated me to earn my second bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Utah State University and my master’s degree in Speech Language Pathology from the University of Utah. I love the combination of psychology and speech disorders as I work with individuals and families to reach their communication goals. I enjoy working with children of all ages and providing personalized therapy to meet their needs. Outside of work, I enjoy mountain biking, playing volleyball, camping and spending time with my family.

Brandon Gust PT, DPT

I grew up in Riverton Utah and after graduating high school went on a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Veracruz, Mexico. Afterwards I had the opportunity to play collegiate baseball at Salt Lake Community College and Utah Valley University where I later graduated with a Major in Exercise Science and a minor in Spanish. At UVU I volunteered at a pro-bono physical therapy clinic as a Spanish interpreter where my desire grew to become a physical therapist and to work with the Spanish speaking population. I earned my Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions in Provo Utah in 2019. I enjoy interacting and working with the pediatric population in the wide variety of diagnosis and challenges they can present with including developmental delays, chronic pain, sports injuries, torticollis/plagiocephaly and Cerebral Palsy to name a few. Outside of work I enjoy being active with my beautiful wife and daughter, golfing, wakeboarding, and fishing.

Jacob Earl MS, OTR/L

I received my Master of Occupational Therapy degree in 2019 from Idaho State University. I studied OT because I observed how much my little brother's abilities improved during occupational therapy services and saw how much the OTs loved doing their jobs. 7 years of schooling later, I am ecstatic to work with children in my dream job. I love St. George and the surrounding area and the opportunities to be outdoors. I especially enjoy spending time with my wife.
