Welcome to our “Meet the Therapists” 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 us! Meet Sara! Sara has been with the company since September of 2014. She is a licensed and certified speech-language pathologist. Read on to find out more about Sara:
Where are you from? - Born and raised in Billerica, MA. After graduate school, I continued to live on the North Shore until 2014 when I got this job and became a South Shore gal!
What do you like most about Boston? - I like everything about Boston! The sports teams, the food, the views, the museums, the vibe… I grew up visiting the city regularly and I love it.
How did you decide to become an SLP? - If I’m being honest, I decided to become an SLP by accident. I began college with a different path in mind, but I took a few classes in Communication Disorders, just to fill requirements and ended up loving it! A few classes lead to a few more and I was hooked in no time! I’m so happy I stumbled upon this field.
What are your professional areas of interest? - The thing I love about this field is that it’s ever-changing! I’ve developed a stronger interest in working with language, AAC, cognition, and swallowing/feeding.
What do you like to do in your free time? - I like to read, cook, go to the beach (even in January), kick box, and hang out with my family and dog!
What is your favorite food? - Ice cream, no contest. Any flavor, any time. Absolute favorite – waffle cone with black raspberry ice cream and chocolate sprinkles!
What is an interesting fact about yourself? - I can touch my nose with my tongue.
We hope you've enjoyed getting to know Sara! Check back soon to learn more about our other therapists!
