Rupal Patel

Speech Intake Coordinator - Midlands Office

I graduated from Devry University with a Bachelor's degree in Operations Management with a focus in Logistics. I worked for a little while at Boise Cascade as an Operations Assistant before moving to TN where I joined the Walgreens team as a Store Operations Manager. Three years later, my husband was promoted and we moved to New Jersey. While living in New Jersey, I was fortunate to have the option to stay at home and enjoy our little girl grow up. After four years in NJ, we asked to be moved back to the south because we decided that the cold weather and fast life were not for us. This move brought us here to Lexington, SC. We loved it the minute we moved, and have decided we are going to retire here. As time passed by, our little girl was growing so fast and started school, which left me trying to find things for myself to do. I decided that I would start to work part time. As I began looking for a job, I ran into Beth Bunge, one of the owners of Bright Start, who also happens to be my neighbor. She offered me the opportunity to come and work for her a couple of hours a week, and gladly accepted the position. Little did I know that Bright Start would be growing and that I would be part of a great team. Since starting with Bright Start in the Speech Department, we have grown from one Speech Therapist to nine Speech Therapists, and have expanded to other locations besides Columbia and Greenville. Over the years I have learned so much about ways and resources to help families who may not know where to go or where to start for services. I enjoy working for Bright Start, where everyone makes a difference in a family's life. When I get a call from a family who is very grateful for our services because their child has made such great progress, I can say that I played a very small part in helping that family reach their success.
