Denielle Ellis

Patient Scheduler

Denielle is our Patient Scheduler here at AASL. In this role, Denielle coordinates all aspects of patient scheduling with new and established patients. She helps to welcome all incoming clients to our practice and educates them about the therapy process, acquires all required documentation, and schedules initial evaluations and treatment sessions.

A big believer in anything is possible, Denielle supports the AASL mission of maximizing each child’s potential in every life stage.

Denielle is no stranger to therapy and schedules as she is a military spouse, a mother of 4, spent the last 11 years as a Care Coordinator assistant, and is a full-time volunteer with The Clearwater Challenger League where she coordinates the team sponsorship, manages, coaches, and acts as team mom for her son’s special needs softball team. She is currently working on her degree in Health Care Administration now that her children are older, and her son is stable. She is grateful to be a part of such an amazing team with so much excitement and commitment to maximizing each child’s potential. She enjoys her role each day as she gets to speak with, interact with, and assist each one of our AASL families.

In her spare time, Denielle loves visiting Universal Studios and The Walt Disney World Resort with her family. Feel free to give her a wave if you see her there with her ears on!
