Neurological Disorders in Children: Early Development is Critical
Meet Marissa | Speech-Language Pathologist
Meet Marissa, a speech-language pathologist at Solace Pediatric Home Healthcare. A member of our team for two years, she earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA.
Describe your role at Solace.
I evaluate and provide service to clients in the areas of articulation/phonological disorders, receptive/expressive language, feeding, fluency, executive functioning, pragmatics and augmentative-alternative communication.
What do you like most about your job?
I love being able to work with children and their families in a home environment! It’s so valuable to have the family’s input and observe their children in a place where they are most comfortable. When parents are able to observe what we do, they are able to carry over the strategies and goals at home. I see so much progress with our clients due to all the hard work our families put in!
What are your hobbies?
I love cycling, hiking, camping, baking, and cooking.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
Earning my master’s degree so I can have the most fulfilling career I could’ve ever imagined!
Who is your biggest inspiration?
My partner, Matt. He inspires me with his intuitive cooking skills and cycling. I wouldn’t be able to bike up a hill if it wasn’t for him!
What might someone be surprised to know about you?
I went to college in Pennsylvania and met the cast of “The Office” when they had a parade in Scranton.
How would someone describe you?
I think most people describe me as happy, outgoing, organized, and funny. For those who know me, I enjoy planning and being busy!
What would you be doing if you weren’t working at Solace?
I would love to have my own vegetable/livestock farm where I would serve monthly five-course seasonal dinners.
