About Leigh Ann

Leigh Ann Porter, MA, CCC-SLP earned her master’s in Communication Sciences from the University of Central Florida in Orlando in 2013, and has enjoyed being an SLP ever since. While at UCF, Leigh Ann was part of a grant to prepare SLPs to work with English Language Learners, earning a graduate certificate of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

She has traveled extensively throughout the United States and abroad, and has gained a wealth of experiences from her international visits to Japan, Cuba, and Mexico. Many of her travels were part of her studies, or through volunteering with AmeriCorps. She has completed projects with Habitat for Humanity, the Boys and Girls Club, Valley Forge National Historic Park, the American Red Cross and others. In 2007, Leigh Ann was awarded a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship to study Public Health in New Zealand. It was there that Leigh Ann earned a Postgraduate Diploma in Public Health from the University of Otago (Wellington Medical campus).

 

Leigh Ann now resides in Kansas City where she divides her time working across outpatient, acute, and inpatient rehab settings. She has presented for ASHA CEUs to regional SLPs on topics such as how the respiratory system and cough influence dysphagia, a review of the literature on dysphagia exercises, and generating measurable dysphagia goals. For multidisciplinary continuing education with PTs and OTs, Leigh Ann has presented on topics such as Cognitive Retraining with an emphasis on memory strategies, and the SLP’s scope of practice & making appropriate patient referrals to the SLP.
