I discovered the field of Speech Pathology my junior year of high school. I fell in love with the field from the very beginning, but because of the wide scope of Speech Pathology, I was not quite sure which direction I wanted to go. I had the option to pursue working with adults or children in a hospital, private clinic, school, or other locations. As I pursued this career in my higher education, I discovered a passion for working with children, especially those who stutter or are D/deaf or hard of hearing. I had the honor of doing my last semester of clinicals with the amazing clinicians at Can Do Kids and realized that I wanted to begin my career in this place where I knew I would be able to pour into my patients all the knowledge and passion I had been working toward for the last 7 years. I can’t wait to see what I’ll learn and experience here!
