Holli Steiner

Speech Pathologist I

Holli Steiner brings passion and energy to Heartspring in her role as a Speech-Language Pathologist. She’s been a member of the team for nearly four years, and views her role at Heartspring as giving a “voice to the voiceless.”

Holli originally went to school at Kansas State University to become a broadcast journalist, but realized her true calling was Speech-Language Pathology, a career that would present an opportunity to give children with special needs a chance to have their own voices, and changed her major her freshman year.  From there, she says, she never looked back. She received her undergraduate degree at Kansas State and her master’s from Wichita State University.  She is currently working on her doctorate at Wichita State.

Holli began working at Heartspring part-time as a speech-language pathology assistant and, through her dedication to her craft, she has emerged as a leader in Heartspring’s Speech-Language Pathology team. Seeing students grow and learn is a driving force behind her motivation to improve each day.

Holli works extensively with Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) (e.g., iDevices). She uses books, tablets and other electronic devices to help students find their voices. She creates programs and does careful evaluations to make sure each communication tool is the right fit for each student.

Holli knows there is no set guideline or template to what is best for an individual student and has the patience and understanding to help give each student the skills necessary to communicate more effectively. She also helped develop and leads Heartspring’s Caffeine Connection coffee cart program. Students build social and practical skills by making coffee and lattes for Heartspring team members and in the community. The program gives the students a chance to gain real-life skills, including how to communicate with customers on the job.

When she’s not working or studying, she enjoys spending time with her family, cooking and Wildcat football and Wichita State basketball, of course.
