Mentor: Nicole A. Ceppaglia, MS, CCC-SLP
Bio: My name is Nicole and I have been a proud Speech-Language Pathologist for 6 years. I graduated from SUNY Fredonia and have worked in both Florida and New York. I have worked with individuals ages 9 months - 105 years old. My passion is working in the SNF setting with individuals with Dementia. I learned the most through asking questions and believe in holding an open and compassionate mentor program. I love to answer questions and help new SLP’s grow their confidence in providing good evidence based therapy and evaluations!

Teaching philosophy: I believe strongly that every new clinician should have someone they can go to without hesitation to ask any question. I believe in keeping an open and compassionate approach to teaching and guiding. I don’t believe in bad questions and also believe in asking questions more than once. I gained my confidence as a new SLP by learning from those more experienced around me and hope to give that back in any way I can!
