Sharon Webb

Speech pathologist

Sharon Webb - Speech Pathologist

Sharon Webb loves getting up in the morning knowing she’ll be able to make a difference in someone’s life

As a speech pathologist, Sharon helps people with their communication and swallowing difficulties.

“It is so easy to think of communication as just ‘talking’ but people communicate through spoken language, sign language, using low- or high-tech communication methods, non-verbal communication cues, and communication boards,” Sharon explains.

And when it comes to swallowing, she assists people who have coughing or choking issues to remain independent and safe to go about everyday activities, like eating lunch.

So if you want a super employable career, you’re in luck. “Currently there are not enough speechies and there’s a huge demand for speech services. If you’re thinking of studying speech, just know you will be so appreciated by the clientele that need you!” Sharon says.
