Soon after her realization, Megan was blessed with the opportunity to accept a position as Speech-
Language Pathologist at Western Missouri Medical Center at the beginning of 2013. Here, Megan has
broadened her scope of experience by working with children and adults, and training in
videofluoroscopic swallow study. She also gained immense appreciation in working closely with
families, speech language pathologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and nursing staff. It
was also here that Megan first met Carmen, where Carmen recognized her learning style and fostered
her clinical skills by encouraging open communication and collaboration in treatment approaches.

In 2015, Megan was thrilled to join her friend and mentor, Carmen Rathert, as a contract therapist for
Carmen’s new practice. Through Chatterbox, Megan is able to provide accessible services within the
Warrensburg and Whiteman Air Force Base communities. She is enjoying the opportunity to gain
experience in new settings, and is pleased to provide convenient therapy services for the busy lifestyles
of today’s families.

Megan considers herself a “generalist” and has experience in working with a wide variety of diagnoses
across the lifespan. Megan particularly enjoys working with pediatric language delays and disorders,
phonological processing disorders, childhood apraxia of speech, literacy and dyslexia, and adult
dysphagia. Megan enjoys thinking outside of the box and incorporating learning input strategies she has
learned in collaboration with physical therapists and occupational therapists. Megan feels that it is
important to offer learning opportunities through a variety of input channels, including tactile, auditory,
and visual experiences.

Megan is anxiously awaiting her fifth year as a Speech-Language Pathologist so that she can begin to
pursue her Clinical Specialty Certification in Child Language and Language Disorders. In the meantime,
Megan hopes to participate in PROMPT training courses to obtain her PROMPT certification. Megan has
experience in errorless learning and discrete trial training through her time as an ABA tutor while in
Graduate School. Megan has also been trained in the Institute of Multi-Sensory Education’s Orton-
Gillingham literacy and dyslexia treatment program.
Megan Hilsabeck, M.S. CCC-SLP is a licensed and certified Speech-Language Pathologist and contract
therapist for Chatterbox Speech Therapy, LLC. She received her Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology
from the University of Central Missouri in 2010 and completed her Master of Science Degree in Speech
Pathology and Audiology in 2012. She is currently a member of the American Speech-Language Hearing
Association (ASHA) and Missouri Speech-Language Hearing Association (MSHA).

​Megan began her career at the Missouri Veterans Home in Warrensburg, MO. In her short time there,
she had the opportunity to serve local veterans by ensuring comfortable and safe eating and swallowing.
While she enjoyed working for and interacting with the gentlemen, she found that she longed for a
greater variety in her caseload and missed working with children.
