Debra C. Lowsky, MS, CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist currently in private practice based in Columbia and Lugoff, SC. In her 30 years of experience, she has provided therapeutic services in public and private schools, daycare centers, preschool programs, home health, clinics, and long-term care facilities. She received her BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from the College of New Jersey and her MS in Speech Pathology from Rutgers University. While treating infants and toddlers with oral motor delays, she became frustrated with the lack of tools for use in the field of oral sensory-motor intervention. Debra’s husband John Lowsky, Jr. therefore decided to develop quality products in order to fill this specialized need. As a mechanical engineer with a BS ME from Rutgers University, John began designing prototypes based on input from his wife and other speech pathologists as well as occupational therapists. Prototypes were eventually refined into products, and together John and Debbie formed ARK Therapeutic Services, Inc., a company that designs, manufactures, and distributes speech therapy tools and other healthcare products. Today, ARK continues to expand and improve in order to better serve its customers’ needs.
