Rachel, SLPA (Speech Language Pathologist Assistant)
“I was once told that what you are meant to do in life is something that you have already been doing, but just didn’t notice. Without a doubt, I love serving people, most especially young people. To impart knowledge, to educate, and to help empower youth to use their voice and make themselves known gives me great joy and purpose. And since I feel like a big kid most of the time anyway, why not serve in a profession that allows me to do just that! I have worked as an assistant in Speech Language Pathology since 2009. Since receiving my dual bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorder, and Linguistics, from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008, I have had the pleasure of serving all kinds of children, from the private practice to the school based setting. It has been a blessing to have been accepted into the family of Faith Pediatric Rehabilitation, to serve families and most especially their children.”
