Congratulations, Rachel Perkins! We are proud of you and the great work you’re doing!

We would like to give an overdue welcome to Rachel Perkins PT, DPT, to the D&D family. If you have been at our Sanger clinic you have already met Rachel, but if you haven't had the pleasure, here’s a little bit about her:

Rachel attended Centenary College of Louisiana, where she played volleyball and earned her bachelor's degree with a double major in Biology and Psychology in 2016. She then attended UT Southwestern School of Health Professions, where she graduated with her doctorate of physical therapy in 2018. Rachel is certified in Dry Needling, is currently working towards her strength and conditioning certification (CSCS), and hopes to eventually achieve board certification through the APTA as an orthopedic clinical specialist (OCS). Rachel is passionate about working with athletes and facilitating return to sport, as well as using exercise to help people of all ages return to their hobbies, and prior level of function. Outside of the clinic she enjoys running with her dog Jaxson, playing volleyball, and trying new restaurants with her friends. Welcome Rachel!

We couldn’t be prouder of psychology graduate, Toni Ficarra! Keep up the great work, Toni!

A very special shoutout to our amazing NSSLHA Chapter President! This week’s is Toni Ficarra! ☺️👏🏼Let’s find out more about the awesome things she is doing... 🌟✨

Undergrad: Centenary College of Louisiana

Why SLP: I first was introduced to the field of speech and language pathology my sophomore year of high school while volunteering at a skilled nursing facility. I really enjoyed watching the support and treatment the SLP offered the patients and so I reached out to her to shadow her. After my first day, I knew that becoming a speech and language pathologist was the career choice I wanted to make. Communication is essential in daily life to be able to express wants, needs, or ideas. I could not be prouder to be part of a field that positively impacts an individual’s success with effective communication. This field has not only driven my desire to be a clinician, but to also impact the field by conducting research. I am looking forward to driving the success of treatment and evaluation in this field through my passion for research and being a clinician.

Areas of Interest: aphasia, dysphagia, TBI, apraxia of speech, expressive and receptive language, and cognitive communication disorders.

This week, Dr. Jessica Alexander traveled to Montreal, Canada to present research at the 60th Annual meeting of the Psychonomic Society, the foremost conference for cognitive psychology. Dr. Alexander presented research done in collaboration with psychology graduate Monica Sewell ‘19 on how font can disambiguate emotionally ambiguous language. Dr. Alexander also presented results from a collaboration with faculty colleagues at other Associated Colleges of the South institutions to produce an online workshop to bring cognitive science findings into the college classroom through training faculty in the science of learning and memory. Thanks to ACS for funding that applied research/teaching project!

Congratulations to Dr. Jessica Alexander for getting tenure and being promoted to Associate Professor! We're thrilled that her hard work and dedication to the department and her students have paid off so spectacularly. We threw her a surprise party to celebrate. Thanks to all the students who came out to show their support and gratitude, especially those who did such a great job with the party decorations and those past students who came from out of town, making the party extra special. And thanks especially to Dr. Alexander for everything she's done for the department!
