Brittany first came to CHAT in 2012, when her opportunity to shadow founder Phyllis Kupperman solidified her decision to attend graduate school in speech-language pathology. She returned to CHAT to complete her clinical fellowship in 2016 and has stuck around ever since. Brittany brings a passion for social justice to her position as Senior Speech-Language Pathologist and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Leader and recently spearheaded a fundraising effort that led to the development of our new transgender/GNC voice and communication practice area. She is thrilled to continue to help expand CHAT’s impact, foster inclusive communication, ask the tough questions, and both support and push boundaries as needed for our employees and the people we serve.
Brittany holds a Bachelor of Arts from Connecticut College, where she majored in Anthropology and minored in Linguistics and Spanish. She received a Master’s of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University, and holds a Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) and Illinois licensure as well as a Professional Educator License. She lives in Hyde Park with her partner and two beloved cats.
