Jennifer WhitleyJennifer Whitley


Jennifer is a certified speech-language pathologist and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at Indiana University, Bloomington. Jennifer is an ACE awardee, an affiliate of Special Interest Group 1, Special Interest Group 10, Special Interest Group 11, Special Interest Group 14, Special Interest Group 16, as well as a former S.T.E.P. participant.

Why does Jennifer participate in the ASHA Community?
I participate in the ASHA Community because it is a great way for me to connect with other practicing bilingual speech-language pathologists. The ASHA Community is also a great way for me to reach out and problem-solve through a variety of issues from academic related issues to clinical practicing issues. I also absolutely love to hear what other practitioners are dealing with in each of their clinical settings: from academia, to schools, to hospitals, to clinics- I love hearing it all! This is always my first go-to place when trying to connect with other speech-language pathologists who are not in my immediate network of colleagues.

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?
Michelle Obama. She exemplifies a life and career of community, family, and service.

What would you name the autobiography of your life?
Hasta la Raíz/ To the Root.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose?
Esperanza Cordero from the House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros. She was the protagonist in the first book I read written by a Latina author. As a child, it was the coolest thing in the world for me to read a book that I could absolutely relate to in a personal way.
