Julie’s message to friends and supporters of the Center:


I’m deeply excited and blessed to join the Center for Hearing & Speech as the Executive Director.

In these few short days since starting, I’ve been incredibly impressed by the entire Center’s dedication to mission and to our clients.

My main priority now is to learn and understand as much as possible about the Center, our history, culture and operations.

Moving forward I hope to improve and grow our programs – all the while, recognizing and respecting the immense work of everyone who has shaped the Center over the past 98 years.

The Center is in a unique position, and carries a unique responsibility. We are responsible for helping those with the greatest need in one of the most fundamental aspect of life: communication.

I hope to share – in some small part – this responsibility in the Center’s future and I am excited to work with you, our partners, supporters and friends to continue the essential mission of this outstanding organization.

Throughout this process, please know that I value any and all input. If ever you have a question or concern, please contact me at reedj@chsstl.org

Thank you,

Julie Reed

Executive Director
