Carolyn Nguyen


Carolyn is a fourth year Communication Sciences and Disorders major with a minor in Linguistics. Although she enjoys the different populations and departments that speech therapy offers, she has developed a passion for patients with speech and swallow complications due to movement disorders. In the future, she hopes to become a Speech-Language Pathologist specializing in this demographic. Aside from academia, Carolyn enjoys singing, working out, conducting motivational speeches, volunteering for UF Shands, and working at the English Language Institute as a language assistant. She also loves spending time with her family and creating healthy dishes for her friends.
