Nicole Troendle, M.S. CCC-SLP
Nicole Troendle, M.S. CCC-SLP, Bacharach’s new director of speech therapy, has been passionate about helping patients improve their speech and communication skills since she was an undergraduate student at Stockton University.
She graduated from Stockton University with a bachelor’s degree in Speech Pathology and received her master’s degree in Speech Pathology from Towson University.
Nicole has dedicated her career, in both the acute rehabilitation and outpatient settings, to working with adults who have suffered a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Her areas of interest include adult neuro rehabilitation, voice, and dysphagia. She is certified in the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT), Myofascial Release Therapy and is a VitalStim Therapy Provider.
Nicole shared, “I love the variety of patients I am able to work with as a speech therapist – I am lucky enough to help people of all ages with a wide range of diagnoses, making each day both challenging and gratifying.”
Nicole started at Bacharach as a pier diem speech therapist in 2012. She worked her way up to become a full-time staff member and was recently named director of the speech therapy department. Now, in addition to continuing to treat patients, Nicole will oversee the department. She said, “Bacharach has actually been my favorite place to work. Patient-centered care is very important to me and Bacharach always puts the patient first. The entire staff works together as a team with a focus on helping each patient achieve the highest level of recovery possible, so they are able to realize their full potential.”
Nicole also serves as a member of the stroke team at Bacharach.
“I truly enjoy working with stroke patients. As a speech therapist, we frequently work with patients throughout their full recovery process. Seeing the improvements patients make from the time they start rehabilitation until they finish their outpatient therapy is very fulfilling.”
