Mandy Rodstrom, a 19-year school-based SLP and person who stutters, kicks off our new series, 'SLPs Who Stutter' in honor of National Stuttering Awareness Week and shares her story.

Our 'SLPs Who Stutter' Series features the personal stories in a monologue, open-ended storytelling format of exceptional SLPs who stutter. They share their personal journeys, interweaving how those journeys impact their professional journeys, and offer listeners insights into the lived-experience within a specialized lens.

Bio: Mandy Rodstrom, M.A., CCC-SLP lives in Westerville, Ohio outside of Columbus where she grew up. She is a person who stutters and an 19-year school-based Speech Language Pathologist. After 30+ years of living as a covert stutterer, Mandy has recently stepped out and began her journey to meet and embrace her stutter and the stuttering community. Professionally, this has propelled her to become a Stuttering Specialist. She attends as many stuttering community events as she can! Mandy is married to her college sweetheart and they have three children. When not engaged in all things stuttering, you can find her spending time with her family, enjoying the outdoors, going on long walks, reading, cooking/baking, listening to music, exercising, traveling, watching The Office or Parks and Rec on repeat, or having a family dance party in the kitchen!
