About Arielle Marcus, B.A.

Arielle Marcus was born and raised in Miami, Fl. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a certificate in Speech-Language Pathology at Florida International University in 2016. She began obtaining her Master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Florida in the Fall of 2016. She discovered the Swallowing Systems Core (SSC) Lab through a clinical practicum placement under Dr. Humbert and quickly became fascinated with doctoral student, Alicia Vose’s, research into developing a coding system for degrees of laryngeal vestibule closure. Shortly after, she was employed as a Research Assistant and began working away at performing timing and kinematics videofluoroscopic analyses and data organization for a variety of Alicia’s studies, including studies focused on volitional laryngeal vestibule closure, electrical stimulation, and targeted biofeedback. Arielle is pursuing a career as a Speech-Language Pathologist and hopes to work rehabilitating adult patients in an acute care medical setting. Her interests include playing video games, going on Pokemon Go adventures (especially with lab engineer Alessandra), going out dancing, going to the beach, visiting museums and zoos, dressing up for Renaissance Festivals, and spoiling her cuddly Chipoo (Chihuahua/poodle), Psyche.
