What inspires me as an SLP?

We asked Judy Hale, a fellow SLP and friend what inspires her as an SLP. Judy has been an SLP since 1980 and we love her perspective, particularly as the field has changed so much over time and yet one thing remains constant: " the desire to communicate with others and to have our voices be 'heard'." This post is a great reminder of why most of us do what we do!
