Forty for 40: Jennifer Walk, MS-SLP ’03, CCC-SLP
When Jennifer Walk first moved to Germany in 2007 with her U.S. Army husband, she discovered that there were very few English-speaking communication disorders services for the more than 80,000 Americans living in and around Ramstein Air Base.
Walk established a German business, and began treating children out of her home for three years until she and her family moved back to the States. She founded a company that taught parents and child care workers about speech and language development in young children, and also served the birth-to-three population at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
Walk opened a full-time private clinic when the family returned in 2013 to Germany. Each week, she and her team of three SLPs see more than 70 children and provide education and support for families trying to navigate living overseas with a child who has communication difficulties.
