Why does Carol participate in the ASHA Community?
I participate in the ASHA Community because it is a great way to network with other professionals and share clinical experiences. The discussion threads provide a fresh perspective when tackling issues within my work environment. I appreciate the topics related to advocacy and leadership development as they are my passion.
The best part of waking up is?
The best part of waking up is that I woke up! That means I have another day to enjoy and to make the most of with family and friends. Every day is a gift.
What is your best childhood memory?
My fondest memory is of my grandfather, Amby Burke. He used to chase me around the tree in front of my preschool in West Haven, CT. I would ask him to “catch me if you can” and no matter how tired he was or how hard it was to walk with his cane, he would.
What is something interesting/fun people may not know about you?
In my “spare time”, I am a Grade 7 USSF Soccer Referee. I have officiated youth, high school, collegiate showcases, and adult soccer games.
