Dr. Linda M Carroll, speech-language pathologist and voice trainer, is an internationally-recognized voice clinician with nearly 30 years experience as a rehabilitation specialist. Although a specialist for performers, Dr. Carroll also treats patients who have high voice use demands, complicated voice issues, or severe dysphonia. She has extensive experience in treating patients with a variety of organic and functional voice disorders, including nodules, paralysis/paresis, scar/sulcus, polyps, polypoid corditis, edema, cysts, laryngeal sicca, post-hemorrhage, atrophy, Parkinson s, pachydermia, GERD/LPR, musculoskeletal tension, hormonal dysphonia, functional dysphonia, and conversion disorder. She also treats dysphagia and dysarthria. Dr. Carroll has extensive experience in disordered and normal voice. Prior to Dr. Carroll s career as a voice clinician and researcher, she was an active operatic and classical singer, performing regionally to critical acclaim. Dr. Carroll holds a Bachelor of Music (BM) in voice performance and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in music education from the University of Maine. She also holds 3 degrees from Columbia University Master of Science (MS) in Speech and Language Pathology, Master of Philosophy (MPhil), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Applied Speech Science. Her dissertation focused on aerodynamics of the vocal tract in operatic sopranos. Her unique background, acute perceptual skills, knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the normal and injured voice, as well as her extensive clinical experience place Dr. Carroll at the top of her field. Dr. Carroll s research on the aerodynamics and acoustics of the normal, supernormal and disordered larynx have helped revolutionize assessment and management of dysphonia. Publications have centered on use of clinical voice measures, management of the injured and/or post-operative voice, and assessment of dysphonia
