Thanks for working here this week: Wendy Echols, Speech Language Pathologist

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Meet Wendy Echols, MS, a Speech Language Pathologist (CCC-SLP) with Rehabilitation Services in Gillette, Wyoming. For those who don’t know, speech-language pathologists (sometimes called speech therapists) assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent communication and swallowing disorders in children and adults. Wendy earned a Master’s of Science Communication Sciences and Disorders from Western Kentucky University and is currently working toward a Doctorate of Speech Language Pathology at Rocky Mountain University of Healthcare Professions. She’s worked for CCH for more than a year and a half!

Wendy previously worked as a social service director in a rehab facility and then became a long-term care administrator before entering the field of speech/language. She most recently worked for the U.S. Air Force as a Department of Defense civilian in a neuro-developmental pediatrics clinic. “Since I became a speech language pathologist, I found where I fit,” she says. “There are two things that are essential for me to feel successful in my current role. First: I want my patients to be happy with my work. And second, I want them to improve.”

When asked what inspired her to work in health care, Wendy says: “I knew I wanted to work where I could be of help.”

When Wendy isn’t at work she loves to spend time with her family and travel.

We asked Wendy what she likes most about working for CCH and what excellence every day means to her. Check out her response:

“I enjoy the variety of work environments I am able to work within to keep my skills sharp. I love my co-workers. They are professionals with lots of experience in their respective fields.

Excellence every day means providing the best and most appropriate treatment to yield the best clinical outcomes.”

Thank you, Wendy, for working hard to help our patients improve and go back to enjoying their lives. We are proud to have you on our team.
