Associate Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders
Suzanne Welty, who earned the Ed.D. in Educational Leadership, Teaching and Learning from Azusa Pacific University, joins the Communication Sciences and Disorders department after serving as adjunct faculty for four years. She has been employed for over two decades in the public schools as a speech language pathologist and special education teacher. Welty has specialized in diagnosing and remediating communication, behavioral and social challenges of individuals diagnosed with Autism and other developmental disabilities. She counts it a privilege to equip her students to become competent and compassionate speech and language pathologists.
One of Welty's deepest joys is helping those with special needs discover their unique talents and gifts as they find a place of service within the local church. In addition, Welty has a passion for missions. She has spent many summers in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Germany and finds joy in visiting, praying for, and investing in those who are serving Christ world-wide.
