UNI Student Pursues Speech-Language Pathology Career
In May 2016, Megan Butz will graduate from the University of Northern Iowa with her master's degree in speech-language pathology.
"As a non-traditional student, I've been given a second chance to pursue a career that I'm passionate about and that drives me to serve people in a way I never imagined possible," Megan says.
Students in UNI's Speech-Language Pathology Program gain clinical experience across a variety of settings, but a majority of that is earned at UNI's Roy Eblen Speech and Hearing Clinic (RESHC). RESHC provides low-cost speech and hearing services to people throughout the Cedar Valley.
"The thing I love most about the field of speech pathology," Megan says, "is that we are giving people a second chance to communicate. We are working with them at some of their lowest moments, fighting with them for that second chance. It is an honor to be able to serve people in that way."
