Betty L. McMicken, PhD, CCC-SLP

We are very fortunate indeed to have Dr. Betty L. McMicken treating patients and consulting with us in our office. A renowned clinical speech pathologist, researcher and university professor, Betty says she has enjoyed 47 years in the field which she describes as being all consuming and immensely rewarding. As Betty says, “There is no greater lift in my life than the ongoing passion for learning and the translation of that knowledge to excellence in patient treatment.”

Though only in our office two days per week, we enjoy the ongoing opportunity of working with and learning from her. When she is not practicing speech pathology, you can usually find Betty riding her horse, playing with her goats and chickens or going skeet shooting.
