Stories that Build and Inspire Growth

I have worked with Orange Tree Staffing for several years. They have found placements for me as a Speech-Language Pathologist in a school and home health setting that were both a fantastic fit. You can always expect professionalism. support, competitive pay and quick responses/resolutions to conflicts that may arise. Thank you for such a great experience, always!

LaVonna, CCC-SLP Lakeland, FL

As an OT with OTS I have been working at a UCP campus since 2012. At UCP I see in-clinic and outpatient children from the age of birth to 21 years with a variety of diagnosis and developmental delays. I treated a 3 year old little girl with autism. To describe my client upon initial visit, she was 2 years old and only exposed to the Spanish language in her home.

Kristina, OT Winter Garden, FL

My professional experience has been a huge challenge in Florida until I found OTS. I have no words to express the gratitude that I have for this company’s staff. Since I spoke with Christian Chang, my professional life started to change in a positive way. He has been a great support for me professionally, a great advisor, and a great recruiter. The same goes for others like Mardly, Cris, Alex, and so on. These people have been my encouragement to stay and keep working as an SLP. This year will be my 30th year in this profession and I definitely feel appreciated as a speech and language pathologist. I am glad God put them on my way.

Patricia R. M.S.-SLP Naples, FL

I have worked with OTS since 2015 providing speech and language services to private school students. I am grateful to serve as a liaison between the public school district and the private schools. This has allowed me to collaborate with district staff, cultivate my leadership skills and connect with all of the therapists who serve the private school students.

Lissa, CCC-SLP Seffner, FL

I work at a wonderful site now (part-time as requested) thanks to Mardly and the staff at Orange Tree. Mardly is always available and motivated to help and assist me should any issue arise. The organization is well structured with knowledgeable, caring, and professional staff members. For almost 7 years with Orange Tree; I haven’t been unhappy, unsatisfied, or disappointed with the level of service and problem solving done by the staff.

Clarice, CCC-SLP Windermere, FL

I am writing this testimonial to say that Orange Tree Staffing is the best Therapy Company I have ever worked for as a Speech-Language Pathologist. I first spoke to the CEO, Mardly Smith, when I replied to an email back in 2014 that was seeking a contract therapist in Pasco County Schools. It was crystal clear from our first conversation that this was a different type of therapy company. During my phone interview, she inquired about the times that I had truly helped a student be successful. I liked her obvious commitment right away to providing quality services. Orange Tree staff is always available to answer questions and help with any concerns. They frequently will check in just to make sure everything is going smoothly. This company’s intentions are always to provide the best services for the students, and in doing so has also created a therapist-friendly environment that is so hard to find. Mardly has taught me many valuable lessons over the years and has truly become a friend. She always listens and provides me with both personal and professional advice, whether I had difficulties with a principle or with more personal situations in my life. I have nick-named her, “The Best Boss Ever!”. I would highly recommend this company to any therapist considering a contract position. Thank you for this opportunity to brag a bit about my job that I love!
