Sierra Corbin


Eugene, Oregon


She began her path in speech-language pathology as a volunteer with ShelterCare in Eugene, Oregon, mentoring a survivor of traumatic brain injury. She has since expanded her career and expertise, earning a master’s degree, completing an internship in a Primary Stroke Center hospital, and working for several years in skilled nursing facilities. She also currently works at the University of Oregon’s Communication Disorders and Sciences program, supervising graduate students and implementing community programs.

Many areas of speech-language pathology fascinate her. She has since developed high-tech communication systems, allowed people with severe swallowing problems to eat again, assisted in improving the voice, and helped people to understand what they are going though, how to build on their strengths, and to face their new challenges with confidence. Of course, what she loves about her job is that her clients often teach her valuable lessons about life and hope.
