  2. 2. Speech-Language Pathologist Passionate About Treating Kids with Brain Trauma “Working at CHOA is great, it’s my dream job! I’m working with children with brain injuries, so I work with kids before they go back to school or home.” Hometown Education Job Title Employer Atlanta, GA M.Ed. ‘13, Communication Sciences and Disorders, Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA B.S. ‘11, Communication Sciences and Disorders, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa,AL Speech-Language Pathologist Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) Family experiences fueled my interest in field Atlanta is an amazing place to be a graduate student Achieving dream job has been extremely rewarding After completing my bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders, I immediately enrolled in Georgia State University’s CSD master’s program. My motivation to pursue a career in this field was fueled by an interest in special education. Some of my family members have children with special needs and they’d gone through speech and occupational therapy. Based on these experiences, I became interested in speech and how much communication means to all of us,so I decided to go into a field that helped kids and adults with a variety of communication disorders. With Georgia State being located in downtown Atlanta, it offered me numerous practicum experiences in healthcare systems, private practices and outpatient facilities. Towards the end of my last year while interning at a school, I met the head speech therapist of Fulton County and she offered me a job as a clinical fellow at an elementary school. I had to be supervised for 10-15 hours per month, but I was able to perform all the duties of a speech-language pathologist. Once my clinical fellowship ended after two years, I realized I didn’t want to continue my career in schools because I wanted to have more experience with newly diagnosed children.Since I began working for CHOA,every child I’ve had an experience with has been rewarding.All the kids come to us with low level functioning, so being able to train them to learn how to swallow and communicate with their families and peers is amazing and well worth the degree!
