Originally from Celina, OH, I am a Junior studying Speech Pathology and Audiology. I have a passion for ensuring people can effectively communicate with others by any means necessary, and after completing a certificate in Disability Studies and Community Inclusion, I am interested in adults with disabilities that may hinder their communication. Currently, I look to pursue a setting which focuses on adults with dysphagiaand communication disorders. While my interests are slightly narrowed, I find anything about the field of Speech Pathology interesting and enjoy being immersed in the academics that will serve me well in my future.

I am a senior at Kent State University and will gradua

te with a bachelor of

science in speech-language pathology and audiology in May

2015. Previously, I

attended Case Western Reserve University studying political

science, so I have a

wide range of interests. I plan to focus my career and re

search on stroke

patients, particularly in aphasia and dysphagia. These ar

eas interest me because

both affected my grandmother for many years. I have bee

n president of the

student organization, NSSLHA, for two years, leading a

large group in community

service and educational opportunities. Outside of speech

-language pathology, I

enjoy singing and playing with my two cats and hedgehog.
