Speech-language pathologist

Sarah L. Schneider is the speech language pathology director at the UCSF Voice and Swallowing Center in the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery.

Schneider specializes in evaluating and treating all aspects of voice, with expertise in the professional speaking and singing voice. She joined the department in 2007 and has since helped develop the voice and swallowing program. She earned a Certificate of Clinical Competence in Speech-Language Pathology from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, or ASHA, and is licensed in California.

Schneider is active in several research projects at the center and also works as a voice research consultant outside of UCSF. She sits on the editorial board for the Journal of Voice, contributes to voice texts and speaks regularly at the local, national and international level on vocal health and rehabilitation.

A leader in coordinating voice conferences and other educational activities, Schneider has studied voice privately and performed as a soloist in choral settings and musical theater. This experience helps guide her clinical practice.

Schneider earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees at Marquette University, where she was awarded the Alfred J. Sokolnicki Clinical Excellence Award at each commencement. She completed her clinical fellowship at the Vanderbilt Voice Center in Nashville, Tenn. and continued to work there after her fellowship ended. Prior to joining the UCSF Voice and Swallowing Center team, she worked in Dr. Robert T. Sataloff's private practice in Philadelphia, while continuing to establish herself as a voice clinician.
