My name is Maria Fairfield. I am excited to join the Therapy Solutions family full-time. I am a speech-language pathologist, which on the surface, the title may be misleading. Many think we only help people with speech disorders; however, there is so much more. The depth and complexity of the various diagnoses and deficits we treat goes far beyond that. SLPs can also treat voice, speech, language, swallowing, memory, and cognition. I am lucky enough to have the opportunity to treat patients from birth to geriatrics and everyone in between. I am most passionate about pediatrics, but also enjoy seeing adult clients.
I am an upper peninsula of Michigan native, but attended UND in Grand Forks, ND for both my bachelors and master’s degrees (go Sioux). I moved to Dickinson in 2018 upon graduation. I have worked in the school setting for the last two years and have done some PRN work as well for therapy solutions.
In my free time I enjoy traveling, riding snowmobiles, and spending time with my boyfriend and cat.
I look forward to meeting new clients!
