She is a certified speech-language pathologist who has worked with individuals with acquired brain injury for many years. Board certified by the Academy of Neurologic Communication Disorders and Sciences (ANCDS), Dr. Kennedy is a Fellow of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and a recipient of the ANCDS Honors Award. She has been associate editor and guest editor for peer-reviewed journals on topics related to brain injury.
