Mrs. Tara Hepworth - Speech and Language Pathologist


I’m Tara Hepworth and speech therapy is my jam! I am a recent graduate of CSU Chico and I am entering my Clinical Fellowship year as a Speech Therapist and also my first year at STREAM. Becoming a Speech Therapist has always been a dream of mine. When my youngest began preschool I was finally able to begin my journey to make that dream a reality. I received my B.A. and M.A. degrees at CSU Chico in Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2018 and 2020.


Oroville is a very special place to me because it is where I grew up. Here in this wonderful community I have been truly blessed and have created many lifelong friendships and learned from some of the best educators and coaches out there! I’ve lived in Gridley for the past 13 years where my husband and I are raising our three kids on his family’s prune & walnut farm. Even though I reside in Gridley I still have a special place in my heart for Oroville and am looking forward to giving back to this wonderful community!


In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, going to the kid’s sporting events, and coaching. My family and I enjoy all things water related, skiing/snowboarding, camping, hiking, and hanging out at our cabin in Lake Madrone. Lake Tahoe, Lake Oroville, and the ocean are my happy places!


I love working with children and I am looking forward to the year ahead!
