Freshout of col­lege, Kate Sch­weitzer was hired in June of 2006 as a new speech and lan­guage pathol­o­gist at North Coun­try Hospi­tal. Lit­tle did she know six years later she’d be head­ing up the depart­ment.

Kate took over the helms of the depart­ment in early Fe­bru­ary when she ac­cepted the po­si­tion of the clin­i­cal su­per­vi­sor.

“Not much will change in the depart­ment,” Kate said. “We’re go­ing to con­tinue to pro­vide great pa­tient care and work on keep­ing open com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the other de­part­ments we work closely with.”

The clin­i­cal su­per­vi­sor’s po­si­tion came open ear­lier this year when Lisa Er­win David­son, who, as North Coun­try’s first speech and lan­guage pathol­o­gist, who built the depart­ment, stepped down so she could teach on a part-time ba­sis at the Univer­sity of Ver­mont. Lisa will con­tinue to work part time at North Coun­try. Kate Sch­weitzer, Speech & Lan­guage Pathol­o­gist, is the new Clin­i­cal Su­per­vi­sor of speech and lan­guage at North Coun­try Hospi­tal.
