Biography

Julia Gerhard, DMA, CCC-SLP is an assistant professor in the Department of Otolaryngology. She is a dual-trained speech-language pathologist and voice pedagogue with a special interest in working with professional voice users towards the prevention and treatment of voice disorders. During her graduate studies, she merged her interests in art and science by concurrently earning her MA in Speech-Language Pathology and her Doctorate of Musical Arts in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy from Temple University in Philadelphia. She expanded her studies of voice science by participation in the Summer Vocology Institute led by Dr. Ingo Titze through the National Center for Voice and Speech (Salt Lake City, Utah) and the Science of the Singing Voice Course led by Dr. Johan Sundberg (Malmköping, Sweden). Julia completed her clinical fellowship training at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where she participated in the Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Fellowship program and gained clinical skills in the management of voice disorders and acute care feeding, speech and language issues. 

A classically-trained soprano, Julia has performed as a soloist with ensembles including The Philmore Ensemble (Philadelphia, PA), Accademia l’Ottocento (Foix, France and Sardinia, Italy), and Temple University’s Symphony Orchestra (Philadelphia, PA). Julia has also participated in research presentations at the local and national level.
