About Nicole Heintz

Biography

Nicole Heintz, SLP specializes in feeding and swallowing therapy for pediatric patients of all ages, from newborns to teens. Her areas of expertise include dysphagia, aspiration, tongue ties, strengthening oral muscles, video fluoroscopy swallow studies, and breastfeeding and lactation support. She supports patients in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.

Nicole recognizes that feeding is a basic skill that is often taken for granted. She is passionate about empowering parents to feed their child safely and loves how her work helps parents bond more effectively with their children.

Beyond direct patient care, Nicole also contributes to improving care and processes at St. Luke's by leveraging best practices to streamline referrals, particularly for patients with tethered oral tissue, and expanding cognitive evaluation skills for patients who've experienced trauma, traumatic brain injury (TBI), head injury, and/or concussion.

Nicole earned her bachelor's degree in communication disorders and sciences from Louisiana State University (LSU) and her master's degree in communication disorders with a focus in speech-language pathology, from LSU Medical Center.

In her free time, Nicole enjoys traveling, cooking, baking, dining at local restaurants, and exploring Idaho with her family.
