Wendy was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, and currently resides in Southern California. She has been a speech-language pathologist for the past 46 years. She received a Bachelor’s in Speech-Language Pathology from Bradley University and Master’s in Communication Disorders from Northern Illinois University. Her scope of practice has included diagnostics and treatment of phonological, language, fluency and voice disorders from birth to geriatrics. Most recently, her focus has been with infants and toddlers in early intervention; and working with school age children is her secondary focus. Wendy has a 90% dismissal rate for her early intervention kids.
When asked about her secret to success, Wendy says, “I have loved being a speech language pathologist since I first started in the field. Being a strong proponent of the belief that everyone should have their own voice, I have always felt I was giving others the ability to be heard. Plus, in what other job can you get paid to play with toys all day!”
