In honor of Kameron Beaulieu
Kami served in Oregon for almost 20 years as an Assistant Professor at OHSU. She was a joyful and skilled clinician who was a leader, teacher, and served as the Membership Chair on the OSHA board. She made it her mission to dedicate her career to training and shaping the next generation of SLPs. She was passionate about getting to know and understand each of her students. Kami demonstrated her ability to be a cheerleader of students with a full on “YOU CAN DO THIS!!!” attitude. She loved doing the “good work” of being an SLP and shared this love with all who joined her on the journey.
We chose to propose this award in order to honor the memory of Kami, her dedication to supervision, and her legacy in the Oregon SLP community. As an organization, we value this work, and so we wanted to acknowledge her contributions with this award. We recognized that the lifecycle of being a student, receiving clinical training from supervisors, then serving as a clinician and a future supervisor represents the lifecycle of who we are as professionals in OSHA.
This award would represent an acknowledgement and celebration of the efforts put forward by SLPs in our community that support the training of Oregon students. It would be given to given to SLPs in our community that supervise students, and provides an opportunity to acknowledge SLPs who provide outstanding supervision and mentorship of the next generation of SLPs
