Currently, I am an elementary school-based SLP in Minneapolis, as well as a per diem acute care SLP with a healthcare system in the Twin Cities.
Angela Ding: Angela (she/her) is a first-year MS SLP student at Vanderbilt University. She was born and raised in Northern California and studied French & Linguistics at New York University. She discovered the field SLP during the pandemic lockdowns and found it to be a perfect mix of her interests in language, education, and advocacy for children and the elderly.
Dilys Tan: Born in sunny Singapore, Dilys is a second-year graduate student getting her MS in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University. Dilys’ clinical interests include multilingualism, voice disorders, dysphagia, and cognitive-communication disorders, but she is open to working with and learning from all populations. In her free time, Dilys loves to cook, toss a frisbee, and play mahjong with friends.

Emily is completing her 4th-year externship at the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Along with her graduate studies, Emily invested in leadership opportunities and research. She served as the President of the Student Academy of Audiology (SAA) chapter within her program and she currently serves as the Vice President of Planning on the Executive Council Committee of the National Student Speech Language and Hearing Association (National NSSLHA). Emily works in the Brain and Behavior Lab on her campus as a research assistant and focused her research on the examination of how mask use may pose challenges between clinicians and their patients in audiology clinics and other medical clinics in the domains of listening effort, cognition, and rehabilitation.
