CURS Ambassadors Profiles
Major: Communication Sciences & Disorders, Music minor
CURS Project: Effects of Dual-task Performance and Syllabic Length on Speech Tempo Regularity in speakers with Parkinson disease
What did you get/learn from the CURS experience: I got to experience every aspect of creating a research project, from the beginning idea to running participants to analyzing the results of the data. My CURS project gave me an insider glimpse into the other side of speech pathology work, and also gave me face-to-face interaction with people with communication disorders. I really valued working closely with graduate researchers and all the information and tips they shared with me during the project.
After college plans: I am currently applying to six graduate schools. After completing those two years, I will be happily employed as a speech pathologist in…well, any location!
