Laura Stevenson


Assessment Consultant, Sales

 

What is your role and function at WPS?

Customer relations, product knowledge, and training.

 

How long have you been at WPS?

Six months.

 

Where are you from? Where did you grow up?

I was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, which is my current home.  I have also lived in South Dakota, Texas, and my favorite was living in Laguna Beach, California, when my son was in high school.

 

What are three personal things about you people probably wouldn’t know?

My loves in life: family, being crafty (sewing, cooking, making homemade skin care products), and experiencing new adventures.

 

What’s a big obstacle you’ve had to overcome in your life or career?

I attended graduate school out of state where I didn’t know a soul while being a single mother… it was tough, but one of the best experiences and adventures of my life.  I am grateful!


What’s your personal connection to the WPS mission?

I have been administering the original CASL since 2000, and it has always been my favorite assessment.  Now I get to share my excitement and knowledge while training other SLPs with purchasing and administering the new CASL-2.

 

What is your educational background?

Bachelor of Science in Communication Disorders; Cum Laude—Arizona State University; Tempe, Arizona. 

Master of Science in Speech–Language Pathology—Lamar University; Beaumont, Texas.

 

What’s something you’re currently studying or learning?

I am always looking for a new project: a recipe, sewing pattern, or arts and crafts.  I recently made huge 4 ft. tall 3-D numbers, Five and zero, and covered them in plush fleece for my parents upcoming 50th Wedding Anniversary—to use as props for the photo booth.

 

What do you enjoy most about working at WPS?

The culture at WPS is unlike anything I have ever experienced before; it is fun, warm, friendly, innovative… every single member of our team is a purposeful and meaningful part of this amazing family we call WPS.

What did you use to do before WPS?

My career as a Speech-Language Pathologist has primarily been in the public school setting (preschool¬≠¬≠–high school ages) in Arizona and California.  I have also supervised a private clinic, worked in home health with children and adults diagnosed with ASD, and have worked in SNFs (that is skilled nursing facilities for those of you not familiar with our SLP acronyms).
