While the early 2000s hailed power couples like Brangelina and Bennifer, I’m WAY more excited to shine the spotlight on the dynamic duo on today’s podcast episode 🤩

Leon Daley M.A., CCC-SLP and Athanasia Svenning M.A., CCC-SLP are SLPs who specialize in dysphagia and operate a mobile FEES business together called Daley Dysphagia Diagnostics (while currently planning their wedding on top of it all!) 

Together we discuss their journey in starting their mobile fees business and the challenges they face in introducing fees as an alternative to video studies in hospitals.  We get granular and discuss the challenges of navigating the business and insurance side of their practice, marketing as SLPs, and the need for continuous learning and collaboration in our field.
