Episode #100: Let’s Celebrate Episode 100 of the Autism Outreach Podcast (Lisa Chattler)
Wow! I can’t believe we are here… episode 100! In honor of this milestone, we are flipping the script with my friend and mentor, Lisa Chattler, interviewing me.
Going back to the VERY beginning, I had no idea what I wanted to be, so my mom gave me a career test my senior year and it actually revealed my ideal profession as a speech therapist. I really didn’t know a lot about the career so I shadowed a friend of the family who was an SLP and that day I just knew it was perfect for me, so I declared my major and never looked back. Now I’ve been an SLP for 20 years.
Lisa asks some great questions about the learners, mentors, resources, and paths that lead to where I am today: dual certified as a BCBA and SLP, operating an online business, offering courses and webinars, and hosting the Autism Outreach Podcast. And I get to share those important decisions and people who have shaped my experience.
Since I was a kid, I’ve always been in trouble because I was turned sideways in my chair talking away. That is one of the reasons I love this podcast; not only do I get to talk and have great conversations but I get to do so with experts in the field that I really admire. I am happy to have this opportunity and keep spreading the word about autism, SLPs, BCBAs, and ABA through the show and my online courses.
Thanks for being a listener, and just know your dedication to the field by listening is so important!
