Meet Jennifer Wollan, MSUM’s new speech language pathologist clinician. She supervises graduate students at the speech language and hearing clinic as they work with their clients. She is also in charge of the regional assistive technology center.
Q: What drew you to MSUM?
A: I attended graduate school here so I felt like this would be a good opportunity to pursue. I was thinking about a change in my career, and I was excited by the idea of getting back into the university setting.
Q: What is your favorite part about MSUM?
A: My favorite part is my wonderful coworkers that I get to work with every day. They are a very fun, positive, and supportive group so working with them is great.
Q: What energizes you at work?
A: Coffee and my students!
Q: What is the most interesting thing you are working on right now?
A: We are currently creating a coffee and snack cart for our clients who use AAC (augmentative and alternative communication). When they are here, they can go around our clinic and sell different snacks and drinks to our students, professors and staff, which will help them work on their communication skills.
Q: What is something you are learning and why is it important?
A: I am always learning about the ever-changing field of technology. It’s super important for me to stay up to date on it as a crucial part of my job. Most of the clients I see are using some form of technology. Being educated on the latest technology allows me to provide guidance to our clients and students.
Q: What energizes you outside of work?
A: I love spending time with my family and going to my kids’ activities, specifically hockey!
