Rachel Anderson, M.S. CF-SLP
I currently work at a private pediatric clinic, though I have also enjoyed working and advocating for clients with aphasia. While I do not interact daily with clients with aphasia, I still would like to stay connected and be able to help in that community. I have worked with great groups of clients with aphasia and saw the importance of having a strong support system and knowing your resources, so I would love to be able to help in that.
