Speech Language Pathology
After growing up immersed in the "classical music world" as a cellist, Natalie Wiens became interested in the intersection of creativity and logic. she has a degree in mathematics from Tabor College, where she did research in graph theory about optimal methods of quantifying the connectivity of networks. Her interests then shifted to communication and cognition, which she studied as a master's student in the speech-language pathology program at Vanderbilt.
