Director of Occupational Therapy
Jessica Clickener, OTR
After procrastinating on an assignment in senior English, I went to the library and just pulled a career card which happened to be for occupational therapy. I do not believe it was by accident that I fell in love with OT. That love and passion is still alive and gets me excited daily.
I have been a pediatric OT for 12 years now and still get just as excited today as I did back then when I see the increased independence of every one of my kiddos.
The Killeen area has been my home for 9 years and I have been working with the precious children of this area the whole time.
When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband and working out in the yard or doing home improvement projects. I have 2 fur babies that I spend time with as well.
I enjoy working with all kids on achieving functional independence. I specialize in overall general development, sensory integration therapy, handwriting, visual motor and oral motor/feeding skill work. I look at each child as a puzzle that needs just 1-2 more pieces which I can provide to complete the puzzle. I look forward to meeting you and your child and embarking on this journey through this stage in life. See you at the SPOT!

Kristin Golden, MA CCC-SLP
I have been a speech pathologist for 23 years and have worked in a variety of settings. At the start of my career, I worked with adults in rehabilitative settings in Florida. However, in 1999, I wanted to move closer to family and decided to move to Copperas Cove, TX. This is where I decided to change my focus to work with children and their families. I quickly fell in love with the children I worked with and was excited about how I was able to impact their growth and development of speech, language, and feeding skills. Children's SPOT 4 Therapy was birthed out of a love for the kids we work with and a true desire to provide a rich and dynamic therapeutic environment that will promote excitement to grow and learn each session.

I am originally from Killeen, although I began my career in Denver before I relocated back home. I worked for 15 years in the adult population and have now been working in pediatrics for 7 years. I enjoy helping patients reach their goals and making a difference in their lives. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, my dogs and my family.

Erica Muniz, Receptionist
Hi! I'm Erica Muniz, the medical receptionist for Children's SPOT 4 Therapy. I've been in customer service for over 10 years, but this is my first time working in a children's clinic. I was born and raised here in Central Texas, where I started my family that eventually became a beautiful blended family. In my spare time I love a little day shopping, cooking and family road trips. Being here only a couple of months I enjoy being the face and the voice for Children's SPOT 4 Therapy and the amazing ladies behind this wonderful establishment.
