Julia Gerhard is a speech pathologist and singer with a passion for interdisciplinary voice education and voice rehabilitation. She earned a doctorate in musical arts in vocal performance and a master of arts in speech-language pathology from Temple University. She also completed the Summer Vocology Institute through the National Center for Voice and Speech in 2010. This training led to a clinical fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and a faculty appointment at the University of Miami in the Department of Otolaryngology. At the University of Miami, Gerhard and the medical voice team worked together with faculty from the vocal performance department to foster learning opportunities for voice students including a pedagogy internship program within the voice clinic, World Voice Day events, and educational lectures. Now, as a new mother recently relocated to central Florida, she works as a speech pathologist in private practice.
