Introducing a new blog from our NATS Vocal Health and Wellness Coordinator, Wendy LeBorgne, Ph.D., CCC-SLP.
"I’ve seen Wendy grow from a bright-eyed student asking questions in my office, through years of presentations and publication, to the brilliant resource she has become. She is at the leading front of the profession in her work as a voice pathologist, singing voice specialist, lecturer, performer, and author, and has much to share with our association. She is in an ideal position to help keep us informed about singing health and related issues, and I’m grateful to Wendy for her willingness to share so generously with NATS. I know she has a lot in store for us, and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming her." -- Norman Spivey, Past President, NATS
