Susan Spieker, MS CCC-SLP Speech Language Pathology

Personal Quote:I love to talk and enjoy helping others talk. Of course, speech pathology is more than just talking it is communication and swallowing too. For me, figuring out a communication diagnosis and then planning for therapy is both challenging and rewarding. Helping my clients say new words, regain skills or use compensatory strategies is exciting. Sometimes I can hardly wait for a client to show off a new skill to a parent or family member.
