Jill Westland, M.S., CCC-SLP

Jill is a speech language pathologist serving students in the public schools of Roanoke City, Virginia. She earned a Master’s degree in communication disorders from Radford University and her undergraduate degree in Biology from University of Mary Washington followed by a Master’s degree in Education from James Madison University. Roanoke has a diverse population within the school system that keeps Jill on her toes when it comes to assessing and working with children from different backgrounds. She focuses mainly on the early elementary years and enjoys working with kids. She is a proponent of developing strong reading skills and over the last several years has organized a Family Reading Night for her school and surrounding community. Jill was drawn to the field of speech and language pathology to work more closely with students with special needs and their families. Over the past several years, Jill has also served as a Clinical Supervisor for Radford University in guiding the training of graduate students while they hone their skills at the Radford University Speech-Language-Hearing Clinic. Jill enjoys traveling and Therapy Abroad provides a great opportunity to combine her passion for helping others in the SLP field and her desire to learn about different cultures. When not working, Jill spends time with her children, doing anything outdoors, and taking pictures to capture the memories!
