Marcia Frost, M.S., CCC-SLP
Marcia Frost has served as Assistant Professor of Clinical Education since joining the School of Communication Sciences and Disorders in 2015. She has the distinct honor of growing our future professionals along-side this phenomenal CSD faculty.
Marcia earned her Masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Purdue University and following her medical externship became fascinated with medical speech pathology. Prior to joining Pacific University Marcia worked clinically for the past 16 years in Phoenix, Arizona. During her eleven years of acute care hospital experience at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center/Barrow Neurological Institute Marcia developed a thorough understanding in the evaluation and treatment of those with complex medical and particularly neurological communication and swallowing impairments. Marcia specializes in dysphagia; which also includes work with infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care unit addressing feeding impairments. This, along with her prior experiences in an outpatient comprehensive neurorehabilitation program, has given her insight into the role of the speech pathologist along the entire continuum of care; from infant to geriatric.
Outside of work Marcia is passionate about environmentalism, yoga, reading and being active outdoors; including hiking, camping, gardening and berry picking with her husband, Jeff, and her three boys; Cayden, and twins, Asher and Owen.
