Show Notes

Meet Dan Sherwood, a clinical vocologist at the John Hopkins Voice Center at GBMC. He discovered and pursued a SLP career after thirteen years as an on-air radio personality, hurting his own voice. A lifelong learner, Dan went to great lengths to expand his knowledge of speech pathology and vocology, reading countless books and articles - and even writing one of his own. In this episode, he talks about how that knowledge-seeking approach has improved his effectiveness in therapy and even led to more networking opportunities.
