Mary can truly understand the anxiety and fears associated with public speaking. She can also understand the freedom and excitement that comes with communicating freely. It was her experiences as a young girl that inspired Mary to pursue her career as a Speech-Language Pathologist and obtain a master’s degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences. Mary’s experience has taught her that speech can be difficult, but when mixed with proper instruction and passion, speech can become a beautiful masterpiece.
