Why Did You Choose to Become a Speech-Language Pathologist, Audiologist or Student?: I chose to become a Communication Disorders student because I wanted to do something where I could make a difference in people's lives everyday. I also knew that I wanted to work with children and speech-language pathology provides wonderful opportunity for both of those goals.

How Do You See Your Profession Changing in the Next Few Years?: I think that as the profession of speech-language pathology continues to grow, there will be greater diversity within the field. I believe that we will see greater appreciation and understanding of the profession as well, both for professionals and those receiving therapy.

Why Are You a NSLHA Member and What Value Do You Receive From Your Membership?: I am a NSLHA Member as a way to create connections with students who are in the same field as I am and to meet professionals currently/previously in the field. NSLHA provides many opportunities for advocacy in the speech-language pathology field and opportunities for professional growth, even as a student. As I mentioned previously, NSLHA truly has been a great way to make connections with other students and professions, but also with my community as a whole.

Share a Story About Working with a Client that You Found Was a Rewarding Experience: Although I have not worked with a client yet as I am still an undergraduate student, I have been able to volunteer and advocate for my future profession. The most frequent way that I have participated in advocacy is by informing others about certain days/events that pertain to the profession and related areas. I have even been able to reach out to representatives regarding policies that benefit the profession and even helped to pass the recent bill about interstate therapy services.

What is one best practice or idea you’ve implemented in the past year in your school, clinic or practice that would benefit other members?: One of the biggest things that I have learned recently is that, even if you don't see or feel it directly, doing even the smallest things for people can change their lives, or at the very least, improve their day. Don't ever forget the impact that you can have on others.
