FEATURED COMMUNITY MEMBER

Seth KosterSeth Koster

Seth Koster is currently an SLP in Okinawa Japan at the U.S. Naval Hospital - EDIS. Previously he worked in Prince George's County Public Schools in Capitol Heights, MD as an SLP with the Infants & Toddlers Program. He is a Special Interest Group 16 affiliate.

Why Does Seth participate in the ASHA Community? 

“I primarily participate to learn, though I hope that here and there I might have something useful to contribute. The wonderful thing about the ASHA community is that it affords me deep, rich and meaningful professional fellowship although I live on a small island in East Asia. I look out over the East China Sea while I read the thoughts of my American colleagues.”

What is one of your favorite quotes?
In honor of the late, great Maya Angelou:
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
- Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

I could, and I did. My mother was an SLP before me, and the finest clinical mind I have ever encountered. I owe her every one of my successes, though my failures are my own.

Where would you want to retire?
Here in Asia. There is something to learn around every corner, and always an opportunity to expand one's horizons.
