Hello & welcome to my blog! My name is Kristina Slifco and I am a junior at Central Michigan University. I am majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders and minoring in Psychology and Leadership. I hope to one day work as an early intervention Speech Pathologist with children aged 0-3.

I grew up in the southeastern part of the mitten in Macomb, Michigan and attended Henry Ford II High School. Growing up in Metro-Detroit has definitely made me more of a city gal, but my happiest times have been spent up north by the lake. As the baby of my family, I’ve always looked up to my older sisters and parents; they have had a major influence in making me the person I am today. I miss them all very much now that I’m at college, but I am so grateful to have such hardworking and inspiring people in my life.

Some things I enjoy most include running, playing with my dogs, listening to music, writing, making people laugh, and eating chocolate. I also absolutely love traveling and being outdoors. My favorite show is Parks and Recreation, and Leslie Knope is everything I aspire to be. I have always dreamt of being a cast member on SNL…. But my biggest (and probably a bit more attainable) goal is to run the Boston Marathon. Career wise, I want to advocate for and empower children without a voice through speech pathology services. I mostly envision myself working with children who have grown up with adverse experiences.

Well, I hope this helped you learn a little bit about me. If you’re curious for more, I will be posting about my personal and professional-development experiences lots on here. Thanks for visiting my site- I hope you like it!
