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

"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, helped people with swallowing problems to eat safely, healed voices, educated on best communication treatments and strategies, and assisted clients in learning 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."

Linda Thompson, M.S, CCC-SLP | Therapist

Professional Background:

Linda brings 14 years of rich experience to her role as a speech-language pathologist, with a particular focus on Dysphagia, Cognition, and Voice. Her educational journey at the University of Oregon laid a solid foundation for her specialization in these areas. Linda's certification in VitalStim and her comprehensive training in The Breather and swallowing deficits highlight her commitment to employing the latest therapeutic techniques and tools in her practice.

Throughout her career, Linda has primarily served in Skilled Nursing Facilities, educating patients, families, and staff on swallowing strategies/exercises, cognitive enhancements, and compensatory strategies for improved communication. She has also contributed to the professional growth of her peers by sharing effective therapy strategies. Linda's experience extends to PRN roles in hospital and home health settings, focusing on swallowing deficits and maintaining patient independence in their living environments.

Linda emphasizes the importance of building strong, trusting relationships with her patients and their families. She is committed to creating a loving and caring environment where every individual feels heard and valued. Linda's approach is characterized by open communication, a readiness to research and answer questions, and a dedication to personalized care.

Linda's journey into speech-language pathology was inspired by her 19-year tenure as a preschool teacher for children with special needs and the desire to better support her adult daughter with autism. Her decision to specialize in this field reflects a deep-seated passion for making a meaningful difference in the lives of those with communication and swallowing challenges.

Outside of her professional life, Linda enjoys spending quality time with her daughter, engaging in fun activities with her sisters, and playing games. She also speaks some Spanish, a skill acquired through years of college study, though she admits to practicing infrequently.
