Meet the Therapist: Jordyn

Welcome back to our recurring Meet the Therapist series! We love to hear about our clients' interests and activities outside of speech therapy, and we thought you'd enjoy hearing a few fun facts about our therapists!

Jordyn is a recent graduate of Boston University and has been with our company since May of 2014.  Jordyn has experience working with both children and adults, all of whom have great things to say about her!  She also writes guest posts for our blog.  Jordyn is working on obtaining her Certificate of Clinical Competency (CCC) and is already a third of the way there!  Read on to learn more about Jordyn:

Where are you from?

Los Altos, California

What do you like most about Boston?

I love all of the historical buildings - I'm such a history geek!

How did you decide to become an SLP?

After I graduated from college, I did Teach for America in Washington, DC, and taught 8th grade reading.  I realized I loved working with language, and wanted to be able to help kids at a one-on-one level, so I started looking into speech pathology.  I shadowed a few SLPs and was hooked!

What are your professional areas of interest?

Higher-level language, alternative and augmentative communication, voice, and dysphagia (swallowing disorders)...but to be honest, I love all aspects of our field and find them all fascinating!

What do you like to do in your free time?

Kayak on the Charles River, hike, bike, swim, and READ!

What is an interesting fact about yourself?

My fingers are double-jointed!
