About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to help you feel confident in your adult speech therapy job.

We will teach you how to assess, treat, and document in a way that’s effective and evidence-based—but without the stress and overwhelm.

Our Team

Chung Hwa Brewer, Founder

Howdy! I’m a speech-language pathologist and author of The Adult Speech Therapy Starter Pack. I’ve worked with adults in home health, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, and telehealth.

I currently teach Social, Political, and Cultural Aspects of Communication Disorders at Western Washington University. I love cheesy popcorn and taking gorgeous walks throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Miwa Aparo, Co-founder

Hi, I’m the co-founder of Adult Speech Therapy and an occupational therapist.

I’ve worked in just about every setting a peds OT can work in, including the NICU, outpatient clinics, home health, and schools. I love traveling, Korean dramas, and trying amazing food around my home in L.A. Fun fact—Chung and I are sisters!
