Meet The Owner

Liz Nguyen, MA, CCC-SLP

Hi, my name is Liz and. I'm a licensed Speech-Language Pathologist based in New Orleans, Louisiana and the owner of Dysphagia in Motion. 

My FEES journey started in Orlando, Florida during my Clinical Fellowship at AdventHealth, one of the largest non-profit healthcare systems in the nation. I moved to New Orleans in 2015 with the hopes of expanding my knowledge of FEES, however, quickly discovered that there were no providers in the entire state of Louisiana. So in 2017, I launched Dysphagia in Motion in order to meet the needs of my patients. 

I have completed additional specialized training in treatment and management of dysphagia using endoscopy and working with tracheostomy/ventilator dependent and traumatic brain injury populations. My other areas of expertise include adult dysphagia, cerebrovascular disorders, medically fragile, and end-of-life/palliative care.

I have served as a Clinical Mentor for graduate students interested in the field of medical speech pathology and frequently guest lecture on a variety of topics relating to the Basics of Endoscopy, Medical Ethics, Supervision in Speech-Language Pathology, Counseling in Speech-Language Pathology, and Voice/Swallowing Disorders. I am a certified McNeil Dysphagia Therapy Program (MDTP) provider and also certified in Myofascial Release for voice and swallowing disorders.
