About Theresa Richard, SLP

Theresa Richard is a medical speech-language pathologist and Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. While owning and operating a mobile FEES business, she discovered that a gap existed from research to practice in the clinical knowledge of medical SLPs. As a result, she created the Swallow Your Pride podcast which debuted at #11 on the Science and Medicine chart and currently has over 3 million downloads. She has been an invited keynote speaker for several conventions, has served as President of the Nevada Speech & Hearing Association, and has been a featured columnist in Authority Magazine, Medium, and Thrive Global.

Theresa continues to work tirelessly to advocate for patients with swallowing disorders and was recently invited to contribute to 2 published papers for Dysphagia – the journal for swallowing and swallowing disorders. The articles on assessing and treating dysphagia during COVID were published in 2021. The recent release of her new book for patients with dysphagia called “So You’re Having Trouble Swallowing,” is an Amazon and Barnes & Noble best seller.
Theresa is the founder and CEO of the Medical SLP Collective which currently has over 6,000 members. The Medical SLP Collective provides editorially-reviewed resources, webinars for ASHA CEUs, and expert mentorship. She also created MedSLP Education which provides solid foundational medical courses exclusively for SLPs along with a Medical SLP Certification program.
