Why Does Sindy participate in the ASHA Community? 

“It is inspiring to see the caliber of folks who are in my chosen profession. It gives me a broader perspective of my field and helps me to understand what is happening nationwide. I get questions answered. I get to give to the profession from my knowledge and experience. I have been an SLP since 1978 and I have seen a lot…I get new perspectives from others' practices. It unifies us.”
