Kathy Gruhn brings 35 years of child development experience to the creation of her My Baby Compass series. Holding both bachelors and masters degrees in speech and language pathology, and a certification from the Amercian Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA), Kathy’s educational background is extensive. Yet, her diverse clinical experience working with both children and adults in hospital, school and home health care settings is what truly impassioned her to develop the My Baby Compass program.
Kathy’s passion for speech pathology began when her father had a laryngectomy and was left with an electric larynx that made his voice robotic in nature. After attending speech therapy sessions with her father at the Mayo Clinic, Kathy knew she had found a career path. Later, in 1973, Kathy met Mother Theresa in India and was impacted by the spiritual leader’s energy for children. When Kathy returned to the United States, she combined her passion for speech therapy with her love of children.
