Theresa Richard and Jenny Mae Howard

Do you want to experience every setting and help every population in your career as an SLP? Jenny Howard is doing exactly that and thriving as a generalist SLP! She’s sharing her story in episode 245 of SYP, and this is one you won’t want to miss. Jenny leaves you feeling inspired, uplifted, and ready to change the world!

Jenny shares, “I’m just a regular SLP. I’m not a researcher. I’m not a professor. I haven’t developed anything or written anything. But I love being an SLP. I love helping people. I love connecting to people. I want to make sure that I not only know how to treat their medical problem, but that I also know how to make them feel seen, heard, understood, and accepted.”

Our field is lucky to have this one!
