Kristin Mangan, M.A., CCC-SLP is an Assistant Professor and Speech-Language Pathologist at the Institute on Development and Disability at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon. She has specialized in stuttering, as well as feeding and swallowing, for the past 16 years. She is an active member in the FRIENDS, the National Association for Young People Who Stutter, as well as in the National Stuttering Association (NSA). She has presented both regionally and nationally on the subject of stuttering to children, parents, educators, and other professionals.
On a local level Kristin sees children, teens, and young adults who stutter for evaluations and treatment at the Child Development and Rehabilitation Center (CDRC) at OHSU. Given her strong beliefs that counseling, community, self-acceptance as a person who stutters, and building confidence is an imperative part of one's stuttering journey, she also started a support group for teens who stutter, called TOPS: Teens Out Promoting Stuttering, in 2015. Then in 2016, she and Sarah Herr started Camp More- a recreational, summer overnight camp on the Oregon Coast, also for kids and teens that stutter.

When not at work, Kristin greatly enjoys spending time with her family and friends, mainly her 6-year old son, Sive. She also loves reading, cooking, gardening, running, eating, and shopping.
