I am excited to announce that Mitchell Trichon joined me as a Chapter Co-leader earlier this year. Mitch moved to Philadelphia to join the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department at La Salle University. He is a long-time member of the NSA. As a member of the Board of Directors he led the national network of adult chapters. He has also previously led 3 different chapters and was recognized as Chapter Leader of the Year in 2008. Mitch’s research focuses on self-help activities for people who stutter which led him to co-found Stutter Social, on online community of people who stutter that hosts support groups via webcams. He is a person who stutters and a clinician that is eager to contribute to our chapter’s growth and evolution.

Mitch and I share the same vision of what we would like our chapter to become, he has lots of ideas and resources that will help us get there. In fact, he has already been very active during the last few months with a few projects he will tell you about himself. I am very happy to work with Mitch in promoting our chapter, reaching out to other people that stutter in our area and providing the help and support they need.

Please help me welcome Mitch to our chapter!
