Anna W. Hunt, Ph.D.


Anna W. Hunt, PHDAt Greenville Assessment & Learning, I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients and their families, including preschoolers, school-age children, adolescents, and young adults. In addition to conducting individualized evaluations, I also provide consultations to families and area schools and conduct school-readiness screenings. My professional interests include attention and learning disorders, social-emotional barriers to learning, and developmental disabilities.

Assessment is our passion at Greenville Assessment & Learning. There are so many things I enjoy about the assessment process! By observing a client's behavior and approach to tasks throughout the assessment process, I am able to generate hypotheses and refine my testing approach over the course of testing in order to provide a truly individualized assessment. After uncovering the client's individual pattern of strengths and weaknesses and gaining converging evidence from parent and teacher observations, I am then able to generate an individualized and attainable recommendation plan.

Graduate & Postdoctoral Training

I earned a Ph.D. in School Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I obtained extensive training in assessment through clinical experiences in public schools, medical facilities, and developmental evaluation centers. As a practicum student within the public school setting, I gained experience in the assessment of children with learning and attention problems, consulting and collaborating with teachers, and providing school-based interventions. My interest in working with children with developmental disabilities began during my year at UNC's Carolina Institute for Developmental Disabilities, where I was involved in comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessments with children with autism (using the ADOS-Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule), intellectual disabilities, learning disorders, and attention disorders. I also completed a year-long hospital- based practicum, where I was trained in the assessment of premature infants whose development was monitored through a NICU follow-up clinic. I moved to Greenville in 2003 to complete my pre-doctoral internship and postdoctoral training at Greenville Hospital System's Department of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, where I gained additional assessment experience under the supervision of doctoral level pediatric neuropsychologists, school psychologists, and developmental pediatricians.

Research Experience

In addition to my clinical training, I also gained research experience in graduate school at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, where I was a member of the Carolina Fragile X Project, a NIH-funded study examining the impact of Fragile X Syndrome on children and their families. My dissertation research examined the reading and phonological processing skills of children with Fragile X Syndrome relative to mental-age matched peers.

The Personal Side of Dr. Hunt

I spent my childhood on a farm outside Franklin, TN where I enjoyed spending as much time as possible outdoors with my two older sisters and numerous dogs. I later moved to Atlanta, where I attended middle and high school at The Paideia School. I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology with a certificate in Women's Studies at the University of Georgia's Honor's College. During college, I spent my summers working on a dude ranch in the heart of the Tetons. After college, I worked in Crested Butte, Colorado, where I was lucky enough to ski, hike, and mountain bike in paradise for a year before returning to reality for graduate school.

My husband and I are proud to call Greenville home, where we met and are now raising two children and two dogs. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, being outdoors, reading, and cooking. While I have no personal talent in either area, I also love music and art. I feel incredibly honored to be a partner at Greenville Assessment & Learning Specialists with two fantastic psychologists (and friends), Drs. Batson and Williams.

Jessica C. Williams, Ph.D.


Jessica C. Williams, PHD Dr. Jessica Williams is a Nationally Certified School Psychologist and Licensed Psychologist with extensive background in the psychological assessment of children, adolescents and young adults. During her doctoral training at the University of South Carolina, Dr. Williams developed her expertise in clinical assessment by conducting comprehensive evaluations within USC's School of Medicine's Department of Developmental Pediatrics as well as within private and public school settings. Dr. Williams completed specialty rotations during her Postdoctoral Fellowship at Greenville Health System's Department of Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics. These specialty rotations involved supervised neuropsychological assessments of medically complex children, NICU follow-up clinic assessments, interdisciplinary team assessments with Greenwood Genetics Center and Pediatric Neurology, and broad assessments for children and adolescents encountering school based challenges.

Kristin E. Bogle, Ph.D.


Kristin E. Bogle, PHD Dr. Kristin Bogle is a Florida native, who found herself in Greenville, SC at the age of 17, touring Furman University as she considered where to attend college. As soon as she set foot on Furman's campus, of course, the decision was made. After earning a B.S. in Psychology and a B.A. in French from Furman, Dr. Bogle moved on down the road to earn her Ph.D. in Clinical-Community Psychology from the University of South Carolina (an APA accredited program). Her training in graduate school was focused primarily on the assessment and treatment of children, particularly those with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), emotional and behavioral disorders (such as anxiety and disruptive behavior disorders), and learning difficulties. Her dissertation work was focused on the effects of individualized and group-based parenting interventions for families of middle school students with ADHD.

After graduate school, a love of Greenville found her back here in the upstate to complete her pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral fellowship at the Greenville Hospital System Children's Hospital. Most of her time was spent in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, where Dr. Bogle conducted both individual and multi-disciplinary team assessments of children and adolescents with learning disorders, intellectual disabilities, ADHD, emotional and behavioral disorders, developmental delays, and autism spectrum disorders. She also provided therapy to children (and their families) struggling with emotional and behavioral challenges; trained under pediatric, clinical, and neuropsychologists; and completed a rotation in the pediatric cancer center.

Currently, Dr. Bogle's professional interests lead her to focus primarily on the assessment of preschool and school-aged children, particularly those who are struggling in school because of learning, attentional, behavioral, or emotional difficulties. Her work with preschoolers spans a wide range, as she has a special interest in preschoolers with developmental delays, and also conducts school-readiness assessments for more age-typical young students.

While at USC, Dr. Bogle worked as site supervisor and researcher in a therapeutic after-school program for middle school students with ADHD. This training provided a strong background in evidenced-based treatment that has stuck with her, as she strives to provide thorough assessments for clients and tie the assessment findings to empirically-supported interventions and recommendations. Dr. Bogle is very passionate about her job, and loves working with the families who come to Greenville Assessment & Learning Specialists seeking answers for their child's struggles. Each case is unique, and she enjoys the opportunity to personalize each assessment using a variety of data sources such as direct assessment of the child, interview, norm-referenced rating forms, observation, parent and teacher reports, and record review. By synthesizing information across sources, Dr. Bogle aims to collaborate with the family to determine any specific diagnoses, identify strengths and weaknesses, and provide a tailored battery of recommendations for the client and their family.

In her free time, Dr. Bogle enjoys spending time with her family; reading; and trying to fix, craft, or learn about anything that will hold still long enough. She and her husband have two daughters, with whom they enjoy playing, traveling, and creating. Dr. Bogle feels very passionately about the work she and her colleagues do at Greenville Assessment & Learning Specialists, and she finds it incredibly fulfilling to help local families get the help they need.

Emmy Holt, M. ED., Fellow, AOGPE


Emmy Holt I am delighted to join GALS as a part-time Learning Specialist. My passion for helping children learn is an understatement! I enjoy helping students develop and strengthen their skills in beginning reading, reading comprehension, and written expression. Growing up in upstate New York, I then moved to the sunny south, and have lived in Greenville for over 38 years. I have a Bachelor of Arts in psychology from Syracuse University, and earned my M.Ed. in Reading/Special Education from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. While in Chapel Hill, I worked in a hospital-based, multi-disciplinary clinic with children with learning disorders, including dyslexia. As a Fellow in the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, I have trained teachers and taught students of all ages. Professionally, I have taught at Camperdown Academy (7 years) and at Christ Church Episcopal School, where I was the Learning Specialist at the Lower School for 16 years. I have also worked as a learning therapist at Clarity, and have tutored privately for nearly forty years. I have been trained in both Lindamood Bell's Visualing and Verbalizing Approach and the Wilson Reading System, and use any of these prescribed approaches, including Orton-Gillingham, in my teaching, depending on the student's diagnosed needs. I also enjoy working with the students' parents on the students' identified areas. I feel very gratified when my students make progress, and become more self-confident, in class and outside of school.

I love spending time with my family, including my husband, Bill, and our three grown children, and, relish being "Memmy" to seven (currently) grandchildren, ages 6 months to 6 years. As a Master Gardener, I love to be outside, viewing or chasing wildlife, whether it's a creature in my gardens or my grandchildren. Gardening, being with family and friends, reading with grandchildren and to myself, and traveling are all favorite pastimes.
