Our Staff Marissa Sewart, M.S. CCC-SLP
Speech Language Pathologist
Marissa graduated with her Master of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Boston University in 2020. After graduating, she completed her clinical fellowship through the Leadership and Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities program with OHSU and Shriners Children’s Portland. During this time, she received diverse clinical experiences with children from birth to 21 including working with children who have complex mobility and communication needs, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, cleft palate/craniofacial disorders, and neurodevelopmental disorders. She has also completed training through the Project ImPACT parent coaching program in order to better serve families of children with Autism and related social communication challenges. Marissa believes everyone deserves access to communication and is passionate about working with patients with complex communication needs to establish Augmentative and Alternative Communication supports. Outside of work, she volunteers on the Go Baby Go Oregon committee to help children in the community join early AAC supports with early mobility aids to ensure all children have the same opportunity to access play and communication. In her spare time, Marissa enjoys spending time with her dog and partner, traveling, baking, listening to podcasts, and trying new restaurants.
