Alise Rittershaus

Briefly describe your experience and education:

I began working with kids during high school, volunteering for my local parks and recreation program as well as teaching a youth tennis program. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Arts from Salem State University in 2015. During my time in undergrad I worked with kids to create theatre. I realized just how important all aspects of communication are and the various tools or support children may need to communicate effectively. Following undergrad I received my Masters of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Emerson College in 2017.

Why do you love speech therapy?

Every child is different! I love being a part of children’s communication development and creating lasting relationships with the children, families, teachers, and other professionals.

What are your passions outside of work?

When not at work I can be found somewhere outside either hiking, camping, gardening, or playing tennis. I love spending time with my family and friends while playing board games and enjoying each other’s company.

What are three words someone would use to describe you?

Reliable, Kind, Creative

If you could be any animal what would it be?

A cat, basking in the afternoon sun
