Sandra L. Sulprizio, MSPA, CCC-SLP, received her bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Washington in Seattle and worked there as a speech-language pathologist in early infant and school district programs. After five years, she moved to California, where she was employed by the Oakland Unified School District in their "special speech" programs. Later she joined the staff at Children's Hospital Oakland. With other pediatric specialists, she established one of the first craniofacial and cleft lip and palate clinics in the East Bay and started the speech and nasoendoscopy programs. Years later, Kaiser Permanente started the Northern California Craniofacial Clinic. Again, Sandra introduced the speech and nasoendoscopy clinics. She is currently a speech coordinator in their craniofacial clinic.
Sandra is a member of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), California Speech-Language-Hearing Association (CSHA), and American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association (ACPA). She is actively involved in CSHA and ACPA committees. She co-authored the speech pathology portion of the ACPA's Core Curriculum.
