My name is Amanda Myers, and I have been a practicing licensed Speech-Language Pathologist since 2010. My goal is to provide ethical, evidence-based, and client-specific treatment in a functional environment to increase speech, language, cognition, and executive functioning abilities in my clients.
My family and I moved to the Newport area in 2016 and began establishing our lives on the beautiful Oregon Coast. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and four children, hiking, taking my dogs for walks, crocheting, painting, cooking, and participating in our town’s culturally diverse activities.
