    What words of advice do you have for the new graduate?

    Quote Of The Conversation
     “…I was facing burnout, right out of the gate. Like my first two years, thinking, how can I exit this field? And I was like, oh, gosh, Leigh Ann, you just started.  But I wasn't feeling fulfilled. And that had many facets to it...but one of them was managing stress. So if I had the tools to manage my stress in different areas of my life, including my SLP stress, I think that would have brought a lot more clarity and peace and have and allowed me to focus more on learning the tools and just being a lot more calmer those first couple years.”  -Leigh Ann Porter
