We are a dedicated group of professionals with a common goal of helping people through local charities and organizations, with a focus on the areas of speech and the hearing impaired. The Sertoma Club of Norfolk is part of an international community, and has been active in Norfolk since 1949.
Globally the club raises more than $20 million every year and each chapter returns those funds to those in need in their respective communities.
We raise money through fundraisers like our annual Spring Fever event and others, and we are totally dependent on community giving and involvement to support our mission.

I am most interested in working with laryngectomees, aphasic adults, individuals with brain trauma, and our aging population.
I am interested in working with school-aged children in either a school or private practice setting, although the further I get along in my graduate studies, the more I am learning about the adult and geriatric population.
I hope to work with children with all sorts of disorders, in all types of settings.
I am fascinated by the variety the speech-language pathology field has to offer, both in the disorders that are treated and the settings that a clinician can work in.
I was influenced to pursue a career in speech-language pathology at an early age. Growing up, I experienced my mom needing additional support in communication exchanges due to her profound hearing loss.
Speech-language pathology is the area where I decided to further my expertise because of the importance of helping people to have a voice (whether through speech, visually, gesturally, etc.).
y interest in Speech-Language Pathology was founded through my passion for working with individuals with disabilities combined with my desire to help others.
My interest in the field of Speech-Language Pathology stem from my desires to build bonds with people and help others in daily communication.
I am almost finished with my first year and excited to continue my education as a future SLP.
My experiences as a graduate student have led me to be increasingly interested in working with the adult population of individuals with acquired communication disorders.
My journey to becoming a speech-language pathologist began at 7 years old when I helped my little brother work on his speech homework, and today I am one step closer to that goal, thanks to the generosity of the Norfolk Sertoma Club.
