    Sarah is a speech-language pathologist working in Grand Rapids, MI. She’s had the opportunity to work in many settings across the continuum, including acute care, acute rehab, home and community, and outpatient therapy, as well as being involved in various leadership projects. In 2016, she started the Honeycomb Speech Therapy website and blog as a way to promote person-centered and functional therapy ideas for adult rehab, with 3000+ current followers. Those who have attended her speaking events enjoy her practical approach and tips that the everyday SLP can implement for a functional therapy approach.
