Sierra Corbin, M.S.Ed, CCC-SLP | Therapist + Owner

"I began my path in speech-language pathology as a volunteer with ShelterCare in Eugene, Oregon, mentoring a survivor of traumatic brain injury. I have since expanded my career and expertise, earning a master's degree, completing an internship in a Primary Stroke Center hospital, and working for several years in skilled nursing facilities. I also currently work at the University of Oregon's Communication Disorders and Sciences program, supervising graduate students and implementing community programs.

Many areas of speech-language pathology fascinate me and I have since developed high-tech communication systems, allowed people with severe swallowing problems to eat again, assisted in improving the voice, and helped people to understand what they are going though, how to build on their strengths, and to face their new challenges with confidence. Of course, what I love about my job is that my clients often teach me valuable lessons about life and hope."

Watching that child smile proudly as they master those challenging sounds, or standing with a patient when they achieve their goals and gain confidence to return to a lifestyle of increased independence is inspiring. She has worked in various settings — including acute, outpatient, skilled nursing, and inpatient rehabilitation — and currently works as a therapist at Oregon Rehabilitation Center where patients are recovering from diagnoses such as stroke and traumatic brain injury.

Amanda Montoya, M.S, CCC-SLP | Contract Therapist

While working as a preschool teacher, Amanda was inspired to pursue a career in Speech-Language pathology after watching a SLP foster the communication skills her little students needed to turn wild and wordless tantrums into, “Help, pwease.” Through earning her master’s degree to become a SLP herself and working with diverse patient populations in outpatient, inpatient, and acute care settings over the past five years, she discovered her passion for medical speech pathology. She specializes in rehabilitation to adults with swallowing, communication, and cognitive disorders from stroke, traumatic brain injury, head and neck cancer, GERD/esophageal disorders, MS, and other neurological disorders. She currently enjoys providing speech services at the Oregon Rehabilitation Center.  Driven by her Sicilian heritage and enthusiasm for every person having the right to enjoy a good meal, she is actively pursuing a Clinical Specialty Board Certification in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. Amanda believes eating, thinking, and communicating are some of the very basic gifts that make us human. She finds it an honor to work alongside patients and their families to create specific and engaging therapy plans to help regain these abilities as much as possible. When she is not providing SLP services, you can find Amanda with a coffee mug in hand, whipping up a good meal in the kitchen, on a volleyball court, or biking around town with her wonderful husband.
