Allison Wood

Speech-Language Pathology Assistant

Began at Teachwell:

 2022

Why did you choose this field?

I have always loved working with children and I want to make a positive impact on their lives. I could never decide on a path in healthcare or schools and I feel that the field of Speech Language Pathology provides the best of both worlds!

What did you think you were going to be when you grew up?

When I was really little I wanted to be a marine biologist, then wanted to be an optometrist when I got to high school.

What or who most inspires you?

My family.

Why Teachwell?

Terri Noldner recommended applying for a position. After all of the positive things she has had to say about her team I couldn't pass up such an amazing opportunity.

What is your background? Experience, degrees, skills, etc.?

I have a BS in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of South Dakota.

People would be surprised to know that I . . .

am originally from Southern California, and I would gladly take South Dakota winters for 4 seasons and less traffic.
