Celly Padgett Kahn
Celeste “Celly” Padgett Kahn is a life-long resident of Florence, SC. She is delighted to be a part of the team at Pee Dee Speech & Hearing in order to have an impact on the lives of the people in her hometown. She joined Pee Dee Speech & Hearing in 2019 as marketing director and quickly initiated a re-branding campaign to refresh the image and awareness of the 50+-year-old agency.
Upon getting to know the Center and the valuable role it plays in the community, she was impressed by the agency’s rich history of community involvement; specifically, that it was founded by Florence business and civic leaders to improve the lives of children and adults suffering from hearing and speech disabilities.
“There are few things as important as being able to communicate: as understanding and being understood,” Kahn said. “Through language we connect to the world around us and come to know our families and our community. Without the ability to hear and speak we are at risk of feeling isolated and lonely. I want people to hear the voices of the people they love and the world in action around them. I’m proud to work with people who so lovingly and professionally introduce clients of all ages, from the newborn infants to great-grandparents, to the joys of connectedness through hearing and speech.”
Kahn’s professional experience includes more than 25 years in local advertising and marketing.
