Louise received the CSHA District 8 (California Speech & Hearing Association) award for outstanding leadership in our field. Louise and others were honored at a District 8 award ceremony at the CSHA convention in March 2019. Louise was nominated by the CSHA advisory board for this award, which is given once per year to a deserving speech-language pathologist.
Part of the nomination stated:
“Louise consistently takes a leadership role in furthering the profession. She freely gives of her time with people who contact her, whether or not they work with/for her. She ensures that the PCSS website has many resources available to clinicians and publishes a frequent newsletter that PCSS shares freely. Louise has been a guest speaker for graduate students to help them understand what to look for in a CF position and how to interview for that position. She contributes her extensive professional knowledge and insights frequently to the SIG and Facebook community pages to which she belongs.”
