Beth earned a bachelor degree in Science in Communication Disorders from Bowling Green State University and a Master of Arts in Speech Language Pathology from Kent State University. During her fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation main campus, Beth capitalized on opportunities to train with excellent clinicians and work with a variety of patient populations. Enjoying the acute hospital and rehab settings, she developed an interest in swallowing disorders.
Over the last 15 years, Beth has continued to develop and hone skills in the area of diagnostics and dysphagia working with various local hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and mobile diagnostic services. At these facilities she interpreted modified barium swallow studies and collaborated with many talented speech pathologists in the dysphagia assessment and treatment planning process.
Continuing her education in dysphagia diagnosis, she attended Susan Butler’s FEES Workshop at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center, completing the ASHA FEES privileging protocol under the supervision of Michelle Gibson with Western Kentucky Speech and Swallowing.
Seeing the need within the community for local, high quality, mobile FEES diagnostics, Beth set out to find a solution. In 2008, she started SuperiorView Swallowing Diagnostics and has been serving greater Northeast Ohio ever since.
Beth continues to strive to stay up to date with treatment and assessment techniques related to dysphagia. Her respect for patients and clinicians has allowed her to implement lessons learned over the years while being open to new ideas and techniques to benefit patients and clinicians in the future.
