Q & A with Suzanne Vogel
What inspired you to become a speech-language pathologist?
I was in college for chemical engineering and found it wasn’t for me. I took a career placement test and it said I should be a speech-language pathologist. That test was definitely correct because this is the career for me. I love my job!
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
I love having a job where I can earn a good living helping children and their families.
What are the different roles and responsibilities of a speech-language pathologist?
An effective speech-language pathologist not only works with the child to grow and develop speech and language but also with their families. The families need to be supported in the best way to help their children acquire needed skills. After all, they are the ones who know them best and are with them the most.
Do you have a story you’d like to share with us? Or, is there a moment you’re proudest of?
I love being able to change people’s minds on whether or not teletherapy for speech pathology is as effective as in-person. They often start off with the mindset that it isn’t. However, after they see a few sessions and the growth the child is making, they change their minds.
What do you love about working with Maxim?
I love how quick to respond and ready to help everyone at Maxim is. No matter how many questions I ask, they never make me feel like I am a bother and always have such positive attitudes.
