SPEECH THERAPIST

CINDY WALKER, MS, CCC, SLP

Cindyclose.jpg

Hi!  My name is Cynthia Walker, but everyone calls me Cindy.  I grew up here in Teton Valley, the daughter of Grant & Sharol Wilson of Alta.  I received my Master’s degree in Speech/Language Pathology in April of 1994 and worked in the schools for a year until we moved to Moscow, Idaho where I worked at Gritman Medical Center.  Besides working with home health, in-patients and out-patients, Gritman therapies also contracted with group homes and skilled nursing facilities.  Because of the small town, we saw everyone that walked in the door.  I learned to love working with the elderly and doing swallow evaluations including Modified Barium Swallow studies. 

In 1998 my family moved to Rupert, Idaho where I secured employment with Cassia Regional Medical Center in Burley.  I worked there until my recent move here to Driggs.  The past 6 years were primarily summer work because we moved to Fairfield, Idaho and 100 miles was a lot for a daily commute, especially in the winter.  During that time I worked for local school districts.  In the summers I continued to work with everything from swallowing and voice disorders to Aphasia, Dysarthria and childhood issues such as Autism and Apraxia.  

I’m excited to be back in Driggs and have the opportunity to share my skills with this community.
