Our Story
Erin Carpenter

Growing up, Erin watched as her mother and grandmother cared for her grandfather who suffered from laryngeal cancer. Unfortunately, the disease ultimately took away her grandfather’s ability to speak.

As a freshman in high school, her grandfather passed away. Around that time, Carpenter’s mother suggested she look into becoming a speech-language pathologist “because she knew how much I loved being with him and communicating with him.” And that's what she did.
