Sarah Duffy

Sarah Duffy

As an officer of the speech and hearing club on campus, I love getting involved with as many things as I can to demonstrate my organization and leadership skills as well as my enthusiasm in the field of speech-language pathology. Through this lab, I have learned an entire new way of using technology to not only analyze speech, but to promote awareness for cultural differences and competence in the clinical world. 

Krysten Cummins

Krysten Cummins
I am a sophomore (a junior at the end of the semester) majoring in Health Science with a concentration in Communication Disorders and a minor in Childhood Studies. This lab interested me because I have always been fascinated by accents and the cultural differences involved in people's language. I am excited to be given the opportunity to master the skills and responsibilities of a Speech Language Pathologist. 

Amy Hertzberg

Amy Hertzberg
Currently, I am a sophomore studying as a Health Science major with a concentration in Communication Disorders. When I first heard about this lab, I was excited to be given the opportunity to apply class material in hands on clinical experience, in order to strengthen my ability of analyzing individuals' language and to increase my understanding of a Speech-Language Pathologist's responsibilities.
