Interview with Dana

Tell us about yourself

I am originally from Washington where I grew up loving to play soccer and snowboard. I now love to hike and play board games with my friends on the weekends.

Why did you become a Speech Language Pathologist?

I became an SLP because my mom encouraged me to job shadow one of her co-workers while I was in high school. I fell in love with the career and completed my undergraduate/graduate studies in communication disorders and never looked back. Thanks, mom!

Why do you think your coworkers nominated you for being ambitious?

I think my coworkers nominated me because its widely known that I am competitive, even when its only against myself! I enjoy always having a goal in mind and to be continuously working towards it.

What do you love most about working with TEAM 4 Kids?

I love working with the kids. It is amazing seeing the growth each kid makes here at TEAM 4 Kids. My coworkers are all pretty fabulous, too!

If you could have one wish come true, what would it be?

If I could have one wish come true I would wish that I could teleport so I could visit my family in Washington whenever I wanted and see all the world has to offer without having to sit on an airplane.
