I can’t imagine where I’d be…

I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 53 on May 20, 2014, and did not share the news for months while I tried to accept the diagnosis emotionally.

LSVT LOUD and LSVT BIG helped me very much

Both LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD programs helped me very much. LSVT BIG helped keep muscle movement and strength. It helped me become aware of the importance of exercises. It continues to help my motivation. The LSVT LOUD program, I believe, helped me to not lose a lot of ability that I would have lost.

I am a speech-language pathologist and started an outpatient adult rehabilitation clinic in Tulsa, OK in 2014, as I felt that adult speech pathology services were very misunderstood and underutilized in my area.

I’ve had an amazing experience…

I have been LSVT BIG certified since June of last year, and have had an amazing experience working with the PD population. I have worked with both lower level and higher level patients and have really enabled others to recognize how much we can do with an amplitude based intervention. My coworkers often consult myself and a few others to work with their patients, bridging a gap between OT/PT and really getting people involved, not just patients or therapists working on the inpatient unit, but nurses, caregivers, and administration (who paid for additional outpatient staff to be trained).
