LLA Spotlight: Marissa Martella

We have amazing therapists at LLA and want to showcase them to you! This week, meet Marissa Martella!

Marissa is a Speech Language Pathologist who has been with LLA for 1 and a half years! She serves students at Root Middle School in Medina City Schools and clients at the Medina and Hudson clinics. Marissa became a therapist because she is a people person and has always enjoyed working with others. She loved the idea that she could service such a wide range and variety of people, from birth to elderly. Communication widely impacts each and every one of our daily lives, and she loves the opportunity to be able to provide the assistance in helping someone find their voice. Her favorite part about being a therapist is being able to see her clients make progress. With little clients specifically, the excitement on their face when they finally said their sound correctly is enough to make her whole week!
