January 2015 THF Clinician of the Month

January 9, 2015 BY Kira Wright, CCC-SLP

In our tradition of honoring a clinician each month who exemplifies one of the core values of our organization, we have chose to recognize Jenny for the way she has modeled our value of “Give!”

Jenny is a long-time Hello team member, valued by districts and colleagues alike for her sharp clinical skills, insightful questions, and smart sense of humor.

Long before she agreed to take on a student intern this fall, I had shared with her that I secretly longed to be her intern, sitting beside her throughout her work day! But she is wise in the way of work-life balance, and only agreed to take on the responsibility of a student this fall after careful consideration of her workload and family life.

We want to recognize Jenny for her efforts to share her wealth of knowledge and experience with a student in our field. In this case, she was giving a very unique experience to the student — lesson planning, leading groups, and taking data through our Hello There model.

Jenny blesses us at The Hello Foundation, as well, with her ideas for novel therapy approaches and contributions to company-wide discussions and events.

Thank you, Jenny, for truly giving – and guiding a future SLP! Congratulations on being our January 2015 Clinician of the Month!
