Eversmann’s degrees in Speech-Language Pathology include an Master of Science from Towson University (Maryland) and a Bachelor of Science from James Madison University (Virginia). At Columbia College, Eversmann teaches a variety of courses, supervises students during their clinical practicum semesters, and has helped start a new course at Columbia College to teach American Sign Language to undergraduate students as well as provide them with practical experience teaching signs to young children with special needs and their parents.
Eversmann also collaborates with other faculty members in the development of experiential learning for Columbia College SLP students that provides them experience in teaching sign language to special needs children aged 18 months to three years in a summer day camp setting. The Koala Camp 2023 is a free day camp for special needs children and their parents. Eversmann originally worked with Dr. Regina Lemmon-Bush, another Columbia College SCICU Excellence In Teaching award recipient, in the development of this program.
Eversmann also draws on many years of private practice, including teaching sign language to young children to enhance communication skills. She owns Speech Signs, LLC, a Columbia-based speech therapy provider, and is a sought-after local and national presenter on her primary area of interest – using sign language with children with special needs and success in early intervention.
