“I became a Speech-Language Pathologist because of my dad! He was visiting a friend in the hospital and saw a speech therapist perform an evaluation. He called me immediately after and said he thought it was a perfect career fit for me. I ignored his suggestion for 2 years! After I finished my undergraduate degree I was looking for a next step and decided to finally feel out his recommendation… I job shadowed a speech therapist and never looked back! Moral of the story- your parents are always right!”
