I have enjoyed a long and exciting career as a professor and speech-language pathologist at Elmira College. My position involves teaching in the classroom and in the clinical setting. Both provide me the opportunity to interact with students who are interested in the development of communication skills and the diagnosis and treatment of communication disorders. I am also director of Elmira College’s Speech and Hearing Clinic. The Clinic offers diagnostic and therapy services to members of the community while also providing our undergraduate students the opportunities to observe and provide clinical audiological and speech-language pathology services under the supervision of certified, licensed professionals. I am very proud of our academic and clinical programs, and continually impressed by the quality and commitment of our students.
