We wanted to title this episode - 'We didn't know we had Tiffany's email' but thought that may be too obscure of a confession 😂 We have Marie Ireland in the confessional for a candid conversation about ASHA's role in our professional lives. Marie has served on various committees within ASHA as well as been the Vice President for SLP Practice - so she has all the behind-the-scenes info. If you have ever found yourself asking the question, 'what does ASHA do for me' or 'why do I pay dues to ASHA' then this episode is for you!
