Professor Stefanie Renovales came to Southeastern in 2020 after serving Polk County Public Schools for 15 years as a speech language pathologist and assistive technology specialist. Prior to this, she worked as a pediatric speech language pathologist in the private sector. During her time in the public schools, she spent nine years working with children and young adults with significant intellectual disabilities at Doris Sanders Learning Center. When transitioning to the local assistive technology (LAT) lead for the district in 2014, she broadened her scope to include assistive technology evaluation and implementation for communication, accessibility, reading, writing, and organization. She has held a certification of clinical competence in speech language pathology from the American Speech Language Hearing Association (ASHA) since 2003 and also holds a certification in severe/profound disabilities and autism.
Professor Renovales is passionate about providing quality experiences and rigor within the pre-service training for students in the communication disorders and sciences program. She desires to see every student become committed to Christ’s call on their life as they pursue a career in speech language pathology.
