This course is an overview of basic human communication sciences and disorders and related professions.

Meet The Professor

I earned my bachelor's degree in communication disorders from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and my master's degree from Washington State University in speech and hearing sciences. I spent several years working in the public school system as a speech-language pathologist in WA, TX, and MI before joining UWEC in 2001. I teach Introduction to Communication Sciences and Disorders including the First Year Experience and thoroughly love getting students excited about our profession.
