Amanda Tarr, a speech-language pathologist in our Physical Medicine Department, was recently promoted to Physical Medicine Department Operations Lead. Although she has taken on new duties, Amanda will also continue to see patients who need speech therapy.
In her new role, Amanda hopes to create processes to improve patient and employee satisfaction in Physical Medicine. She would like to improve community awareness of the department’s specialties, and increase patient volume. Amanda enjoys program development and evaluating processes and procedures, so she feels the new position is an exciting opportunity. Additionally, Amanda would like to encourage hospital employees to refer to the department as “Physical Medicine” rather than “P.T.” in order to better includes all of their services.
In her free time, Amanda enjoys hiking, running, yoga, skiing, and travel. Amanda speaks Spanish and hopes to visit Cuba next year.
