Ian Hepler - HHD Instagram Ambassador

Ian Hepler

Communication Sciences and Disorders


Hi! My name is Ian Hepler, and I am a junior at Penn State University Park. I am majoring in Communication Sciences and Disorders and minoring in Special Education.

My ultimate career goal is to become a speech-language pathologist and work with kids in an elementary school. On campus, I am involved quite a bit - I am a member of the National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association and Sign Language Organization, a teaching assistant for a CSD class, a research assistant in a CSD lab, and, obviously, the HHD Instagram Ambassador for the CSD major.



Ian Hepler - Quote

"When I was asked to serve as the CSD major representative for the HHD Ambassador initiative, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity. I have found my home in the CSD and HHD communities, and I am so honored to share that with prospective (and even current) students! CSD has opened so many doors for me, and I know it can do the same for you."
