Passionate about Speech Therapy and Voice

Katelyn Swiader, M.S.Ed. CCC-SLP received her Master of Science in Education at Old Dominion University and Bachelor of Music from George Mason University. As a Speech-Language Pathologist, she has worked with both the pediatric and adult populations in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, out-patient offices, and private practice. In addition to her love of helping others through speech therapy, Katelyn has a long history as a performer and as a vocal instructor. She has sang professionally with touring opera companies in the United States and has performed in music programs in both Italy and Russia. Katelyn has developed Sound Waves Speech Therapy & Voice LLC, not only to bring her passion for Speech-Language Pathology and voice together, but to provide a practice where she can deliver exceptional and personalized therapy to her patients, to help them reach their own personal goals. When she is not in a speech therapy session, teaching voice, or instructing one of our parent and child music and language classes, you may find Katelyn performing with a rock band, singing at church, or spending time walking nature trails with her children, husband, and adorable basset hound.
