Episode 99 features Pamela Woebkenberg, who hails from Cincinati, Ohio.  Pam works as an office manager in a retail showroom, a communication heavy job.

Pam and I met at the National Stuttering Association (NSA)  annual conference in Cleveland in 2010. Pam is actively involved with her local chapter of the NSA and is helping to launch a new, second chapter in her area.

Listen in as we discuss workplace stuttering, advertising and thoughts on having someone else advertise our stuttering. Pam also discusses her early speech therapy experiences, the impact of being involved in stuttering self-help and family.

I’m so happy that I found your blog. I have never met another person (other than my father) who stutters. I enjoyed listening to the interview with Pamela. I would consider myself a covert stutter…and I’m tired of hiding. Recently I have experienced a tremendous amount of anxiety from graduate school..my stuttering has surfaced again..but it never really went “away”.

Hey Pam and Pam, I enjoyed hearing about both of your experiences growing up and how you both got to where you are now. Thank you for sharing.

Hi Pam – First off, thanks for the link to this site (Mike H from Stutt-L). I listened to the episode and appreciate honesty of both of yours experience. The discussion about the growing up and hearing about how each of your parent’s dealt with your stuttering hits pretty close to home. Although my parent’s were never beligerant about it, the discussion never came up…ever. I think the feelings of shame for me had started because this topic must have been “bad” because no one wanted to talk about it. Later on in life, I heard many of the family doctor’s gave the instruction not to discuss this with your kid because by discussing it will make the matter worse. Thanks again for the podcast…I really enjoyed it.
