My name is Cathy Mershon and this is my fourth year serving as the Speech-Language Pathologist at Sandy Grade School and Cedar Ridge Middle School. I attended Portland State University, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Master of Arts degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences. I hold a Certificate of Clinical Competence from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and am licensed by the Oregon Board of Examiners for Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. I also hold a teaching license with a communication disorders endorsement and am two classes away from obtaining a reading endorsement. I truly enjoy working with the students at Oregon Trail schools and getting to know their families. My husband and I like to hike, ride motorcycles, and travel. He too is an educator, and we love the Oregon summers!
