Name the moment that inspired you to take your career path.I would have never thought that a simple career day registration in high school would bring me to the career path I’m at today. Receiving the opportunity to shadow a Speech-Language Pathologist allowed me to gain a better understanding of the impact communication has throughout our everyday routine. Seeing how the profession provides the support and confidence for others to communicate validated the reason why I wanted to become an SLP.
What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?One of my greatest accomplishments is not only being the first in my family to graduate with a college degree but exceeding my expectations by obtaining a Master’s degree as well. I’m also excited to reach my newest accomplishment of moving to Chicago!
What do you love most about working at Eyas Landing?I love the energy and excitement that each team member brings during therapy sessions. It’s such a fun atmosphere to experience. I also love the constant collaboration and communication, along with support provided from all disciplines.
How has the supervision at Eyas Landing supported your professional growth?The support that Eyas Landing continuously provides has aided me in pushing professional and clinical boundaries I wouldn’t have imagined elsewhere. They have provided me with resources and weekly guidance to succeed and reach personal and professional goals I have set for myself.
