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.

My interest in speech pathology began when I attended speech therapy in grade school to improve my articulation skills and immensely enjoyed it.
I love working with preschool and school aged children on various speech and language goals, as well as those that are hearing impaired and can benefit from speech therapy.
As a future speech-language pathologist I am interested in working with adults with acquired neurological conditions.
My goal is to help as many children and families as possible. With my Sertoma Scholarship, I am one step closer to that goal.
I hope to continue working with adults after I graduate. I would love to rehabilitate adults that don’t “have a voice” which is something most of us take for granted every day.”
I am interested in working with individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Other populations I intend work with are children, and persons with special needs.
It is my intention to continue my education in Voice Disorders and Swallowing Therapy after I graduate. I am passionate about so many aspects of our field, but I hope to specialize in those areas.
