Five Question Friday: Brenda Sitzmann

Happy Friday! This week, we’re pleased to introduce Brenda Sitzmann, a speech-language pathologist at our Woodbury clinic and the Children’s Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic.

Brenda Sitzmann, Speech-Language Pathologist

How long have you worked at Children’s? 14 1/2 years.

What does a typical day look like for you? My days are typically spent seeing patients with feeding difficulties and/or cleft and craniofacial differences. Through a contract with HealthEast, I also provide videofluoroscopic swallows studies at Woodwinds Hospital and inpatient feeding consults throughout the HealthEast System. Each day is a little different; I love the variety!

The Woodbury Clinic is moving to a new location on Sept. 29. What are you most looking forward to about our new space? I am so excited to have more treatment space and laptops so we can document at the point of service! Also, I think that the layout of the new clinic is fantastic and will offer our families an even better experience when their children come for therapy at Children’s – Woodbury.

Do you have a favorite memory from working at Children’s? I love being a part of the Cleft Camp/Family Fun Day that the Cleft and Craniofacial Clinic co-hosts with the North Star Boy Scout Council. It is a great opportunity to help our patients and their families connect and share their experiences.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why? I love to travel and would go just about anywhere! My next adventure is taking me to Italy and Istanbul in mid-October.
