Sarah Herr Davies, M.S., CCC-SLP is a Speech Language Pathologist for Portland Public Schools in Portland, OR. Since graduate school, Sarah has had a special interest in stuttering, and it has quickly become her specialty. While working with students who stutter, Sarah's mission is to provide support in helping individuals become confident as a person who stutters through treating all aspects of stuttering including advocacy and self-acceptance instead of solely focusing on the stuttering behaviors themselves.
It is because of this belief in her treatment approach that she joined forces with Kristin Mangan in early 2016, to create Camp More-a recreational, overnight summer camp for kids and teens who stutter. Find out more about Camp More at www.campmorenw.com Beyond camp, Sarah is actively involved in the stuttering community and currently co-leads the Portland chapter of the National Stuttering Association (NSA)-a support group for people who stutter.
After a successful session of camp in the summer of 2016 and witnessing the positive impact of Kristin’s teen support group, TOPS: Teens Out Promoting Stuttering, Sarah identified a similar need for a younger age group. Thus, KOPS: Kids Out Promoting Stuttering, is being born.
Sarah is also blessed to be a mommy of three busy and sweet (not-so-little) boys, Bryton, Maddox, and Jonas, who keep her challenged and inspired on a daily basis when she is not busy at work or with her groups. Sarah also enjoys cooking, reading, hiking, arts and crafting, and laughing with her family and friends.
