Meagan holds the position of secretary on the BIAPH Board of Directors Executive, and joined BIAPH in 2019. She is a registered Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and the clinical director of Buttle Speech Pathology. She has been working closely with survivors of acquired brain injury since becoming an SLP, sparked by personal experience through a family member with a TBI.
Meagan’s first encounter with BIAPH was in 2015, when she attended a support group with her family member who is a survivor. The speaker was an SLP who spoke about memory difficulties after ABI. After the meeting, Meagan had the opportunity to work with the presenting SLP in brain injury recovery and hasn’t looked back! Her clinical work outside of BIAPH is focused on medical SLP rehabilitation including acquired brain injury, spinal cord, stroke and neurological impairments, in children and adults.
As someone with a personal and professional connection to acquired brain injury, Meagan joined BIAPH to advocate for and support survivors and families affected by brain injury. After navigating brain injury and recovery with her family, she is motivated to help others access resources and support when and where they need it most.
