Personal Summary

Amy Glaspey grew up in Kalispell and graduated from Flathead High School.  She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Oregon in Communication Disorders and Sciences, and additionaly, completed masters degrees in Communication Disorders and Sciences and Early Intervention/Early Childhood Special Education.  After graduation, Dr. Glaspey worked for a rural cooperative in eastern Oregon and was an itinerant speech-language pathologist.  In this setting, she provided speech and language services in rural elementary schools and early childhood education centers.  Dr. Glaspey later worked for the Issaquah School District in Washington State and then pursued a PhD in Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. After graduation, Dr. Glaspey worked at Miami University of Ohio, and finally landed back in her home state of Montana when the new SLP program was reinstated at the University of Montana.  She is delighted to serve as Professor and Department Chair.
