Emily Russell, MA, CCC-SLP

Emily Russell is a tireless speech-language pathology researching machine. Between spending her time catching up on the latest therapy trends, reviewing professional articles and teaching SLP courses at University of Toledo, Emily catches her breath while snuggling her Boston Terrier Buttons and her Burmese cat Mr. Pig. While Speech Pathology is her main passion, her second is traveling; whether it be cruising around the Caribbean or touring Europe. After graduating with her Master's in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Toledo, Emily started working in the Skilled Nursing and Long-Term Care setting. While there, she saw a desperate need for affordable, yet effective, therapy tools. Available tools were either too expensive and inaccessible for her, let alone her patients. Emily pairs her academic research interests in language, cognition and dysphagia with real-world experience. She co-founded AccuTx with the mission of providing evidence-based, effective, and affordable tools and applications that help other therapists in the medical setting; enabling them to provide a higher level of care for their patients.
