Nicole Large

Ever considered stepping into a researcher role? Maybe you thought you needed years and years of experience first. My guest in episode 225 is defying the odds, in more ways than one. In this episode, I have the privilege of talking with Nicole Large, BS, a second-year grad student who is wise beyond her years, and already contributing to the research of our field. Nicole shares her experience balancing it all: graduate school, clinicals, conducting research, and surviving a pandemic!

Her research in pediatric feeding is providing such invaluable insights for SLPs serving this population to allow them to better understand all three pieces of the evidence-based triad. Nicole hasn’t finished grad school yet, but I’m certain she will only make greater gains for our field once she does.
