Meet your presenter, Allison Frederick!
Allison Frederick, M.S., CCC/SLP, CBIST has been a practicing speech-language pathologist for 12 years. For the first three years of her career, she developed her clinical skills working in the subacute/long term care setting where she was able to find her footing as part of an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team. Allison then transitioned to acute rehabilitation, where she continued to develop her teamwork skills, and also where she found her love for working with patients affected by acquired brain injury. Allison became a Certified Brain Injury Specialist trainer in 2014 after finding there was a need for education about how to manage patients with brain injury. Allison has a passion for education, and never misses an opportunity to educate people about the prevention and treatment of brain injury. When Allison isn’t busy trying to convince everyone to wear a helmet, she enjoys practicing Baptiste style yoga, German beer, traveling anywhere and everywhere, and spending time with her English Bulldog, Sydney.
