Prior to joining the Speech & Hearing Sciences program at PSU in 2001, she worked as a speech-language pathologist in a medical setting for 15 years. Susan's clinical area of expertise is adult acquired neurogenic communication disorders. Since beginning work at PSU as a clinical instructor, Susan has expanded the client base for individual clinical sessions on-campus, while also growing the clinical experience to include working with adults in groups both on and off campus. Susan has been a PSU supervisor for Aphasia Cam Northwest, an intensive two-day camp for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, where students are able to work with clients in a naturalistic setting.
