Jerome Quellier, MS, CCC-SLP, is a clinical specialist in traumatic brain injury and communication disorders at a 450+ bed Level 1 Trauma hospital in Saint Paul, MN with almost 25 years of acute, residential, and outpatient rehabilitation experience. During his tenure at the hospital he has focused on neuro-based diagnostics and intervention for dysphagia, cognitive-linguistic deficits, head and neck cancer management, patient advocacy, and curriculum development. Mr. Quellier has made a career-long study of the intricacies of neurology, completed advanced training in brain dissection at Marquette University, actively engages in staff development training, and recently joined a surgery team in preserving language function during tumor resections.
In addition to his clinical practice, he has previously held a faculty position at the University of Minnesota Duluth teaching graduate level coursework, and taught undergraduate workshops as adjunct faculty at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire. Mr. Quellier is excited to bring this topic to the forefront after working with the interdisciplinary team’s challenges in understanding the “what and why” of traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases and tumor resections as they apply to behavioral changes. He graduated Cum Laude with his bachelor’s degree and graduate degree from the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
