Wayne Foster is a certified audiologist and speech-language pathologist. He recently retired from the public schools of North Carolina after directing a large, five-year grant in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools and is now doing private practice. Wayne is an ASHA Fellow, ACE Awardee, and an affiliate of Special Interest Group 16.
Why does Wayne participate in the ASHA Community?
A wonderful by-product of attending conferences over the years has been meeting professionals from across the country. The Community allows me another way to keep in touch with those friends and meet new ones. Interactions with dynamic and innovative professionals keeps my mind active - even after almost forty years!
Where would you want to retire?
While I want to stay in North Carolina, I would love to spend a year (or more) in Germany to put the final touches on becoming fluent in German - FINALLY.
If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Those who know me would not be surprised to know that I would choose the “Flash.” I’ve been a runner for fifty years.
What technology do you wish you understood better?
They are all zinging past me at this point. There is no device or software that I use where I am accessing more than fifty percent of its potential - if that!
