I'm Mary Spremulli, MA,CCC-SLP, a medical speech pathologist and licensed nurse, with over 25 years of health care experience. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to lecture throughout the United States and in Puerto Rico, and currently provide educational seminars with Cross Country Education. I am also president of Voice Aerobics, LLC, a speech-language pathology private practice located in SW Florida.
An Ohio native, and graduate of Cleveland State University, I relocated to Florida in 1989. Here, through my out-patient practice, I began to develop an interest in working with individuals with changes in their voice, speech or swallowing as a result of Parkinson’s, stroke, and other neurological disorders.
Voice Aerobics™ came about originally as an "after therapy" program for individuals who completed a formal treatment program. The weekly class, however, began to attract a variety of individuals, who liked the idea of combining vocal function exercises with a general workout. The
DVD provides individuals with an opportunity to work-out on their own, in their own home, and perhaps provide them with an opportunity to maintain improvements they have already achieved through formal therapy programs.
I have learned, that as a therapist, the most I can offer you, the patients is :
knowledge about your illness or disease, a meaningful and relevant treatment program, and tools that allow you to continue to practice on your own. I hope you find this
DVD useful and articles on this site meaningful as you progress on your own journey.
