Helping teens & young adults
make and keep friends
Suzie Feiertag, M.S., CCC-SLP
Suzie has wanted to be a speech-language pathologist since 9th grade, and she has wanted to be a Minnesotan since 5th grade. She bailed on her home-state of Wisconsin as soon as she hit college-age to attend the University of MN-Duluth and earn her BAS in communication sciences/ disorders in 1998. After a short hiatus to Indiana to earn a masters degree in speech-language pathology from Purdue University in 2000, she returned to Minnesota, her soul-state, where she vows to stay forever.
Suzie maintains employment in educational (high school) and medical (acute and rehab hospital) settings in addition to this private practice environment. Teenagers and young adults are her favorite population.
PEERS is a natural fit for Suzie as her professional strengths and interests include evaluations, interdisciplinary collaboration, and family education. By completing the teen intakes and then providing parent facilitation during sessions, Suzie combines her evaluation skills with educational aptitudes to promote a thorough experience for PEERS families.
Suzie is accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA), licensed by the Minnesota Department of Health in speech-language pathology, and holds her educational license in speech-language pathology from the state of MN.
Outside of work, Suzie can be found running, snowboarding, cooking, traveling, and enjoying all things Minnesotan.
Jennifer Elton, M.A., CCC-SLP
Jennifer Elton's training and experience as a speech language pathologist, elementary education teacher and home health care provider has enabled her to effectively understand the communicative needs of children and teenagers. She has a strong understanding of the education system and special education due process requirements of the state of Minnesota, as well as understanding of the Minnesota Department of Health's guidelines for servicing patients in the area speech and language.
Jennifer earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education from St. Cloud State University in 1994. Jennifer worked in a group home, for many years. It was at that point she learned that she wanted to do as much as she could to help people communicate to their fullest ability. She attended graduate school at Wichita State University and graduated in 1998.
When Jennifer is not working, she loves to spend time with her family, seeing movies with her husband, going for walks, and playing with her two dogs. This winter, you may see her out on the slopes trying to improve her ability to ski!
Becky Haas, M.S., CCC-SLP
Becky grew up in Marshall, MN and graduated high school in 1999. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Literature in 2003 from Southwest Minnesota State University. Her love of language prevailed and she entered graduate school in 2004. Becky attended Minnesota State University-Mankato for graduate school and finished in 2007. While taking the year off after her undergrad degree and throughout graduate school, Becky worked for Habilitative Services Inc. in both Marshall and Mankato where she supported adult individuals in group homes. This really propelled her to merge her loves of working with people with disabilities and teaching language into a career.
Becky graduated from MSU-Mankato with a Master of Science degree in Communication Disorders. Her first job was working at Oak Crest Elementary School in Belle Plaine, MN. At Oak Crest, Becky worked with grades 3-6 but also had experience with middle and high school. She worked in Belle Plaine from 2007-2010. In 2010, Becky began working in the Mounds View Public School District at Edgewood and Highview Middle Schools with grades 6-8.
Becky is accredited by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) and has earned her Certification of Clinical Competency (CCC).
