Who is our Speech Therapist
My name is Seth Fitzgerald. I graduated in 2011 from Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri with a Master’s Degree in Communication Disorders. I have been working as a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) since 2011. Over the past several years I have had the opportunity to serve a variety of people of varying ages and with varying disorders. As for adults, I have had the pleasure of serving people on an inpatient and outpatient basis in both the hospital and nursing home settings. Most of my experience has been in serving adults, although along the way I have had the opportunity to provide Speech Therapy services for preschool to school-aged children and continue to do so. My experience working with children started during my time as a graduate student in the university clinic, then additionally at the local preschool near the university, and it continued in the outpatient setting following the completion of my degree.
