We are thrilled to announce the hiring of our new, full-time Speech Language Pathologist, Madison Staten, SLP.
Madison, a long-time Grenada resident, has been working for Mid South as a PRN at UMMC Grenada. We are so glad to have her transition to full-time. She has an impressive, well-rounded background beginning with a solid High School educational foundation from Winona Christian School. She received her Bachelor of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Mississippi University for Women in Columbus and her Master of Science in Communication Science and Disorders from the University of Mississippi in Oxford. In addition, Madison is Lee Silverman Voice Treatment Certified. This is a behavioral treatment geared towards creating neurobiological changes associated with therapy for people with Parkinson’s. She has a special interest in Dysphagia, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cognitive Communication Disorders as part of her field of study. We know that Madison is ready to take on the speech therapy needs of the community, and we cannot wait to see her patients’ recovery journeys.
Madison is married and has two dogs named Bailey and Luke. She chose to pursue a career in Speech Therapy to improve the quality of life for others by helping patients successfully communicate their wants and needs and to help patients re-habilitate their swallow so they can enjoy some of their favorite foods. When she’s not helping patients recover, she enjoys hunting with her husband, going to the beach, and spending time outdoors with their dogs.
UMMC Grenada and Mid South Rehab value continuing education and promoting exceptional leaders. We are excited to have Madison as a partner. We look forward to her progress and know she will have opportunities to improve our patients in her new role.
