With more than 20 years of experience, Susie Abernathy, MS/CCC-SLP, is a speech-language pathologist. She works with adults with speech, language, voice, cognitive and swallowing issues.
Known for staying current with her areas of expertise, she considers the total person and the impact her expertise may have on her patients’ lives and medical conditions. As a communication specialist, she strives to delve more fully into her patients’ complaints and concerns to add to the treatment of the whole person. She believes in forging a therapeutic partnership and considers her job done when her patients have learned to continue to grow without her.
In her spare time, she enjoys reading, solving crossword puzzles, bicycling and camping with her husband and dog.
“It has been extraordinarily rewarding to help people regain their voice, communicate with family and friends, regain independence and eat what they like.” – Susie Abernathy, MS/CCC-SLP
