Today we are celebrating the 200th Episode of Through the Noise and we do so by welcoming Dr. Arlene Pietranton of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. ASHA is a major membership organization — representing 186,000 members working to make “effective communication, a human right, accessible and achievable for all.” Their members use both science and art in order to diagnose their patients and the staff also takes an innovative approach to running the organization. Rather than “supervisors”, managers and other directors play the role of “coaches,” leading, guiding, and mentoring the staff, rather than overseeing. Dr. Pietranton has been in the field for 22 years so you won’t want to miss her expertise as a pathologist or the insights she shares after many years as a C-level executive.
Arlene A. Pietranton is a certified Speech-Language Pathologist and a Certified Association Executive who has held various clinical and administrative position over the course of her career. She is also a life-long volunteer and community activist who is committed to helping to make a difference.
