SLP Spotlight

Marina Eshak is a speech-language pathologist in an acute rehab unit who mainly works with adult patients who typically have experienced strokes or brain injuries. “In this setting, you see the patients at the beginning of their journey,” says Marina. “So it’s awesome to see the progress from day one to the very end. It’s very rewarding.”Marina says she always knew she wanted to be a speech language pathologist because she wanted to be in the medical field and loved the combination of language and psychology. She recalls working with a patient who had difficulty with basic communication. By the end of her recovery journey, the patient was able to hold conversation and tell stories. “It was a really great experience. It makes you remember this is why you do what you do” says Marina.

Phillip Chang, a physical therapist in an acute rehab unit, loves his job because of the progress he sees from his patients. He says working with patients in vulnerable states is the most rewarding because you help them gain enough independence to get home.“We’re always tying patient progress to function, and how it fits into their life at home,” explains Phillip. He says every day is hard work, but seeing patients go home with a smile on their face is what motivates him to go to work every day.
