Guest: Denise Favor Bayles.

Denise Favor Bayles- (pronounced “bales” like “bayles of hay”) I’ve been in the field of speech pathology since 1995. I’ve worked in hosptials, schools, early intervention, acute care and subacute rehabilitation centers. I’ve been in private practice since 2007 and I work with people of all ages. Personally, I’ve been married to my husband Jon for 17 years and we have three children ages 16, 14, and 12.

Denise believes this is really a calling for her; she has always wanted to work in a field helping others, but wanted to be able to fins a career that would also allow her to balance being a mother with a career. Denise loves working with families to help them learn to communicate better and loves when she gets to hear children say their first words. She also feels it is very rewarding mentoring students considering the field.
