Mentor Coaching for Fresh SLP Graduates

An example of the type of tools and mentoring you can expect

“Mattie is one of the most passionate clinicians I have ever had the pleasure of learning from. Her passion for the field is contagious and it motivated me to be a better clinician. Mattie easily builds rapport and connects with every client and patient she works with. She effectively shares her depth and breadth of knowledge with students and her years of experience are a true asset. Anyone would be lucky to work with Mattie! Her encouragement and easy going nature shaped me into a more confident speech-language pathologist and I am so grateful for all that I learned from her!” – Jalynn Grosz, MA-SLP Candidate, 2019

    Founder, Fresh SLP

    Founder of Fresh SLP & Fresh Ideas for Therapy

    I was a technical writer for IBM Financial Programs before becoming a practicing SLP for 25 years, and have recently joined St. Cloud State as Assistant Professor & Clinical Advisor, Communication Sciences and Disorders. With that experience, I now create and write functional, focused, applicable programs to help SLPs provide the best care and education for adult clients. I also provide mentor coaching to new graduates, and will be releasing a podcast in 2020 aimed to further support their education. 

    It satisfies my passion for helping people and is quite rewarding knowing I’m making a real difference in their lives.  I strive to make my worksheets, educational materials, podcasts and guidance bite-sized and easily understood.

    I love my job! I am a member in the ASHA SIGs 3, 13, and 15. The FRESH Brand for SLPs and associated fields is something I am very passionate about. I invite you to join the FRESH SLP Community and be your best!

    COMING SOON! Fresh SLP Podcast & Instructional Videos

    Fresh SLP Podcast and engaging instructional videos hosted by Mattie where it is all about real therapy, real questions and real answers that a new or evolving speech-language pathologist might face. 

    All the basics of how to be an effective and compassionate SLP will be covered, including:

    I am excited to be hosting this podcast because I’ve put in over 23,000 1:1 hours with patients in evaluations and therapy sessions, not to count the countless hours of talking with docs, family members and caregivers.

    I have something to say! And as a new professor, I’ve discovered students are actually really eager to hear it. In fact, my grad students are who have inspired me to take up podcasting, as they want even more ways to digest my first-hand experience. 

    My favorite thing about my career is the difference I make in the lives of others. Let me share my passion with you and show you how to be a better SLP!

    The topics covered on the Fresh SLP Podcast and educational videos will often be paired with accompanying forms and materials, such as “Fresh SLP Touchdowns,” designed (with feedback from real grad students!) to be informative in a quickly consumable and rememberable model.

    I am a first year SLP graduate student, and any knowledge and experience I can gain about externships, and clinical practice is priceless. From the first “Touchdown” meeting I attended with Mattie, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to ask more questions and gain more foundational knowledge in a fun and collaborative environment!

    I have attended every meeting held since the beginning of the semester and whether the topic is cueing, or medical based, I take that new information with me into my sessions and keep in my brain for future use. The information presented is so concise and intriguing.

    I have limited medical experience and from one half hour meeting alone about medical setting protocols I feel that much more prepared for future externships! Did you know that you must put extra protective equipment on and off in a very specific way? Now I do and will be one step ahead in a medical setting one day. Thank you, Mattie, and Fresh SLP!
