Susan M. Marks, Speech/Language Pathologist at Delafield Children’s Hospital Center, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Health Care Professionals for dedication, achievements, and leadership in speech and hearing.
Ms. Marks looked hard for a profession where she could feel like she was serving others as serving in the name of Christ that was her goal. She wanted to put her faith at work in not only her daily work but also her volunteer work. This led Ms. Marks in the direction of helping people and she decided to do that through speech. She matriculated at the University of Wisconsin, earning a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in 1965 and 1966, respectively. Upon completion of her schooling, the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association certified Ms. Marks in clinical competence.
Ms. Marks is most proud of hearing from people whom she was able to help. The young people she helped had problems with stuttering, cleft lips and cleft palates call her to give her updates on their lives and thank her for changing their lives. That makes her work worth it. Ms. Marks thoroughly enjoys working with children and started out as a speech pathologist for DeForest Public Schools in 1966. A year later, she moved on to Newport News Public Schools to serve in the same position. From there, Ms. Marks landed a job as a speech pathologist at Riverside Hospital Rehabilitation Hospital in 1967. She remained there for three years before joining the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin as a manager of the Speech and Hearing Center from 1970 until 2009. In 2009, Ms. Marks became a speech pathologist at Delafield Children’s Hospital Center until 2018. As a testament to her success, Ms. Marks received an Outstanding Service Award from the Wisconsin Speech and Hearing Association in 1990. She has also been inducted as a fellow of the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association, a member of the Wisconsin Speech and Hearing Association and the National Stuttering Project.
