Our Staff Evelyn Ortega, M.S., CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
Evelyn Ortega, M.S. CCC-SLP is a bilingual (Spanish) speech-language pathologist who received her bachelor’s in Audiology and Speech-Language Sciences from the University of Northern Colorado, then moved to Portland, Oregon to pursue her dream of working as a speech-language pathologist by graduating with a Masters in Speech and Hearing Sciences from Portland State University. She loves being able to see the people she works with grow and learn new skills that they will use to enrich their lives. Evelyn loves incorporating games and making therapy functional and fun. As a bilingual therapist, she has a huge passion both at work and outside of work is giving back to her community and making sure she advocates for families who are bilingual. Being bilingual/multilingual is special, and she wants to make sure the help families she works with embrace and build upon this by continuing to use their home language and use strategies we use in our therapy sessions at home.
Evelyn is originally from New York City, and since then she has made a few stops along the way before landing in Salem, OR. When she is not working she loves staying active and going on adventures with my partner and dog. You can find us checking out new restaurants, hiking trails, and exploring new towns and cities both inside and outside of Oregon.
