Ianessa Humbert, Ph.D., CCC-SLP (she/her)

ASHA Fellow, accomplished scientist, professor and highly sought-after speaker with expertise in swallowing and swallowing disorders. With over 100 speaking invitations around the world, the most common feedback from attendees continues to be "This is the first time a course has really forced me to think about what I'm doing." Dr. Humbert's teaching philosophy requires attendees to question everything they think they know before learning can begin.
