How did Marymount prepare you for your graduate education and/or work setting? 

  • Josephine Ancelle ’14, Valedictorian, Teacher’s College, Columbia University, M.S. Speech-Language Pathology 2016: More than a very good speech language pathology program with inspiring, talented, and caring professors, the MMC Communication Sciences and Disorders Department is one big family.”
  • Christina Castronovo ’13, Graduate of Brooklyn College, M.S. Speech-Language Pathology 2015; Current work setting: Millennium Brooklyn High School Nest Program: The experiences I had at Marymount have prepared me well for Graduate School. The research opportunities, clinical opportunities, and the one on one attention are invaluable. The professors at Marymount are the best of the best. They are passionate about the field and genuinely care for their students. They are incredibly knowledgeable and provide a strong learning environment. I firmly believe that much of my success is owed to the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department. They were always supportive and willing to help in any way they could. I will forever be grateful for the support, opportunities, and experiences I had at Marymount.
  • Kelly Ann Pena ’13, Graduate of University of Wisconsin-Madison, M.S. Speech-Language Pathology, 2015; Current work setting: Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit. What can I say about Marymount Manhattan? If you want an individualized academic experience where professors not only know your name but want you to succeed, then MMC is the place for you. The CSD department allowed real world application in addition to their curriculum, which took our learning past what we did in the classroom. This included clinical practicums during our undergraduate career, research positions, internships, and independent studies. In my two years at MMC as a transfer student from a larger university, I could not have asked for more opportunities and support from the college as a whole. These experiences, and these people, allowed me to jumpstart my graduate career, both academically and clinically, and set me on the road for success. If you have an interest or a goal, MMC will do their best to make it a reality. I could not be more grateful for the people I have met at MMC, the professional and personal connections I have made, and the work I have been a part of.
  • Grecia Gaviria ’13, Current work setting: Build N Care Behavior Therapy
  • Glynna Pomerantz ’10, M.S., CCC-SLP, (Brooklyn College), Current work setting: City Sounds of New York: MMC gave me confidence that pursuing a graduate degree in speech language pathology was the right choice. Upon entering graduate school, I felt well prepared for both the academic and clinical training courses because of my MMC education.
  • Mary Elizabeth Zito ’08, Currently a student at St. John’s University: Marymount Manhattan College is one of the main features that set me aside from all the other students in my graduate program, as well as my co-workers. MMC prepared me to think outside the box and be prepared to practice my field/skills in any environment at any time. Coming from such a supportive environment of professors and classmates has been a blessing and allows me to have colleagues to share knowledge with for the rest of my career.
  • Deena Morris ’06, Current work setting: Anuban Sansanook School in Thailand: I’ve encountered a variety of individuals and settings that I would not be able to handle were it not for my diverse training received from the speech department.
  • Brandi Singaram ’00, Doctorate, Audiology, Current work setting: Private practice: [With] excellent experiences and exposure
  • Maureen Scaramell ’98, Current work setting: Xaverian High School: I had an excellent experience at Marymount. The small classes, informative and well-trained teachers allowed me to enjoy school and flourish.
  • Kathleen Fahy ’72, M.A., CCC-SLP, NYU Speech-Language Pathology program: I had the invaluable experience of working with preschoolers with delayed language in the MMC clinic. At that time, many undergraduate programs did not offer clinical experience.
