Brittany Stroker worked as a clinical speech language pathologist in residential long-term care for five years before transitioning to a research program to obtain her PhD in speech-language pathology. Her areas of interest in research are proxy reporting, patient-reported outcomes, and also integrating communication training into long-term care settings. Her experiences as a clinician heavily influence her research and have led her to have a desire to ultimately impact the quality of life for people with aphasia and other communication disorders. She strived for her clinical treatment to be individualized for each patient's care needs and is developing a research career to keep this in mind. During research for her thesis, Brittany knew she wanted to find ways to be involved with PCORI since it heavily aligns with her interests for patient-centered care.
