The opportunity to talk to kids all day long is what attracted Viktoria Calanche to UTEP's SLP program. As a single mother to two young children, Viktoria balanced her studies and family obligations with volunteer work at Gigi’s Playhouse and the National Stuttering Association to graduate at the top of her class. She looks forward to working with pediatric populations as a speech-language pathologist.
