Speech Language Pathologist Assistant
Shannon is a licensed Speech Language Pathologist Assistant who provides services to children with disabilities and support to their families. After spending a year teaching English to students in Thailand, she discovered her love for language, culture and working with children from diverse backgrounds. Shannon graduated from Metropolitan State University of Denver in 2019 with a B.A. in Speech, Language, Hearing Sciences. While obtaining her degree, she conducted in-depth research on bilingualism in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Her findings were published in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal and she presented at the Colorado Speech-Language-Hearing (CSHA) statewide conference. She believes children with communication deficits have the potential to cultivate their language, cognitive, academic and social skills by implementing a holistic and culturally competent approach to therapy. In her free time, Shannon loves practicing yoga, traveling, seeing live music, adventuring in the outdoors and spending time with her loved ones.
Tamber started with GLO in 2014 as a Behavior Consult. After taking time away for family, she returned to GLO in 2018 with new interests in the non-profit sector and administration. She simultaneously became Development Director for Infinity Foundation and Program Coordinator for the then newly established speech therapy department with GLO. Both roles expanded her skills and dedication to providing support to those impacted by disability. In 2020, despite her enthusiasm for the mission of Infinity Foundation, she decided to focus solely on her work with GLO speech. She supports the speech team in all administrative aspects from client intake to claim billing and payment acquisition. She also works with the general billing team on payment processing and commercial insurance relations.
Tamber still has a passion for therapy and is pursuing a certification in addiction counseling. She will attend for her Master of Social Work in 2021. She practices yoga, loves to dance, studies political philosophy and palmistry, enjoys cookies way too much, and keeps her creative side flourishing through music and writing.
