How It Feels to Be Free with Sylvia Meek
Host Phebe Karen Beiser interviews Sylvia Meek
, writer, speech pathologist, mother and polio survivor
, about her work and her freedom to pursue her passions. In this episode Sylvia recounts her childhood through semi-autobiographical stories and speaks with candor and compassion about her most inspirational client - Maurice Stokes
- whose life, cut short, forever changed hers.
Through her practice of speech pathology, Sylvia has attained the goal she typically set forth for her patients - not to cure, but to maximize potential - as a mother, wife, writer and health care service provider.

"I just listened to this podcast. Great job to all involved. Sylvia, I
was so touched by your memories, particularly those about Maury Stokes.
I was head nurse on North 100 during his stay at Good Sam. I too
treasure pieces of his pottery and hold him in my heart as one of my
great teachers. Thanks for sharing your work. - Gerri Wittekind"
