“Loving it All and Doing It All” with Beata Wazny-Brooks, SLP


Here’s what they talk about: 

  • Her source of inspiration when she encounters challenges while working in private practice
  • Her journey of “self-discovery” which helped her decide how to best direct her energy
  • How becoming a mom affected both her schedule and recommendations to parents
  • Her bold approach to marketing herself through word-of-mouth and Facebook
  • Her belief that sole practitioners are CEOs and should act accordingly


Guest: Beata Wazny-Brooks, SLP

Beata had earned acceptance as a PhD candidate at the University of Alberta when she made a life-altering decision to pursue speech-language pathology in Texas. She has garnered experience in the schools, early intervention, and home health. Her affinity for working with adults transformed into a zealous pursuit of knowledge and experience to treat all speech-language diagnoses affecting children ages birth to 5.

Beata currently evaluates and treats clients in her private practice as the sole provider, and is seeking to increase her work schedule within the boundaries of her family’s needs.
