Hello world of blogging! My name is Mallory, I am a Speech-Language Pathologist in Missouri and I am so excited to start this new adventure of sharing resources!
Here is just a little bit about me! Originally I came to Missouri State University to play golf, over those 4 years of undergraduate school I fell in love with the field of Speech-Language Pathology. In 2009 I graduate from Missouri State University with my Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology! I continued on with my education and graduated from Missouri State University in 2011 with my Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology.
Now I am licensed by the state of Missouri under the Board of Healing Arts and I hold my Certificate of Clinical Competency (CCC) with the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association (ASHA).
After graduation I found 2 wonderful jobs! I work full time in one hospital as an Outpatient Speech-Language Pathologist and primarily work with a pediatric population of all ages and adults of all ages. I also work PRN (as needed) at a different hospital in acute care where I work with primarily adults with various communication, cognition, and/or swallowing disorders.
I have to say that I just love both of my jobs and I am so thankful to have found the field of Speech-Language Pathology! Everyday I have the opportunity to take a personal adventure into some sort of communication or swallowing hurdle a person may be experiencing.
With this blog I hope for many things! Here are just a few of my hopes!
1. Create materials with supported evidence based practice for my patient’s and for other Speech-Language Pathologist or anyone else interested in this field!
2. Reviews of scholarly articles pertinent to the field of Speech-Language Pathology.
3. Share my thoughts on treatment materials including applications for iPad!
4. Provide a place where no questions are silly!!!!
5. Post educational videos and resources!
