Jennifer Oshita is a speech language pathologist at the University of Vermont Medical Center. She specializes in neurologic, oncology rehabilitation and voice disorders. She treats patients with conditions such as cognitive- communication deficits due to brain injury, aphasia, dysphagia, and vocal fold lesions. Her research interests include health care accessibility for those with communication vulnerabilities.
Jennifer enjoys incorporating principles of mindfulness into her work. She aims to understand each patient’s story. She sees her patients as experts in their experience; and partners with them in order to effectively integrate their voice, cognitive communication and swallowing treatments into the context of their lives. Her goal for each patient that she works with, is to complete therapy with an improved ability to participate in the life activities that they love.
