Lea Watson was my mentor as I pursued my Auditory Verbal Certification so many years ago. I was blessed to have had to opportunity to work with her, watch her deliver amazing therapy sessions, and today to call her a friend and colleague. While Lea and Jim are entering retirement (really?) I take very seriously the task that was handed down from Alexander Graham Bell - to Daniel Ling and Helen Bebe - to Jim and Lea Watson - and then down to me. I am truly standing on the shoulders of giants.
