Alyssa (Aly) Vildósola is a speech-language pathologist who is passionate about supporting people who stutter and their families. Growing up in Wisconsin, Texas, and eventually on Long Island, New York, she developed a strong interest in the different ways people communicate and how differences impacted their lifestyle choices. Aly pursued a B.A. in Cognitive Science/Educational Studies at Carleton College in Minnesota before heading to Colorado to earn an M.A. in speech-language pathology at the University of Colorado Boulder. She moved to California to continue chasing her westward dreams. In addition to working for SFSFC, she works at an elementary school in the East Bay, lives in the South Bay, and participates in events for children and adults who stutter throughout the Bay Area.
