Samantha Elandary is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Parkinson Voice Project. She holds a BA in communication disorders and English and holds an MA in speech-language pathology from the University of North Texas.
Since 1999, Samantha has worked exclusively with individuals with Parkinson’s and has devoted her career to making speech therapy services accessible to this patient population. She created “The LOUD Crowd®”, a maintenance program consisting of speech and singing groups for individuals with Parkinson’s to help them maintain the treatment results achieved in individual speech therapy.

The LOUD Crowd® started in Samantha’s home with one group session per month and has now expanded to over 600 group sessions annually at Parkinson Voice Project.
