Helene M. Paulson




What motivated you to become an SLP?

I witnessed the work of SLPs early on through family members who are SLPs and the work an SLP did with my grandfather after his stroke. After seeing the difference SLPs can make, I decided to follow the same path. After that the people I met along the way and those I got to work with pushed me further towards my goals and motivated me to continue to work hard and become an SLP. 

What made you want to work at CHAT?

Their passion and what the organization stands for. The opportunities and supportive training provided for new clinicians. Their compassion and consideration for both clinicians and clients.

What makes you excited about your work?

Getting to be in a creative and compassionate atmosphere with supportive, proactive, and caring individuals.

What do you like to do in your free time?

Crafting, Singing, and Hiking.
