Mary Marasovich, M.A. CCC/SLP

Jack_Russell_Puppy_Eddi   I Graduated from California State University, Stanislaus with a masters in speech pathology and a special education credential. I brought my experience in the public schools, hospitals, private practice and home health with me to Hawaii in 1986. Some of my specialized training includes PROMPT (Prompts for Restructuring Oral Muscular Phonetic Targets), the Lidcombe Stuttering Program, Lindamood/Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing, SpeechEasy anti-stuttering device dispenser, various accent modification programs, and continuing education in many areas. Over time I have developed many special interests which currently include Autism related disorders, Auditory Processing, Apraxia, Cleft Palate and Stuttering. I believe in patient driven treatment with family involvement and use approaches that fit the individual. I have a passion for all things speech related and contribute to the future of my field by training master's level interns and clinical fellows from all over the world. In January of 2015, I completed a Clinical Supervision CEU course to sharpen my skills. I served for many years on the Queen's Cranio Facial Board and provided video voice studies at Straub Hospital. While I enjoy my reputation as a workaholic, I do take advantage of living in this healing and magical place by kayaking, paddle boarding, walking and sailing with my husband and our dog, Mochi. While my profession is a joy, I am most proud of raising my 3 children to be wonderful adults and I know that parenting has given me compassion and caring for the parents and children who come to our clinic for answers.        

Danika Engesser, M.S. CCC/SLP

Danica graduated with her Masters of Science from Minnesota State University, Mankato in 2016 where she also did her undergraduate program. While studying speech therapy, Danica worked at an after school program for kids during which she fell in love with the amazing hearts and creative ideas of children. Living in the Midwest all her life, Danica was ready for a new experience and place to call home and the island of Oahu has been just that! We hope it remains her home for many years to come. Danica’s skills as a speech pathologist far exceed her years of experience and she has become an integral part of the Oahu Speech Language Pathology family.

Samantha Hamilton, M.S. CCC/SLP

Samantha Hamilton has been a Speech-Language Pathologist for 8 years. She received her undergraduate degree in psychology at Michigan State University in 2005. After graduation, she took a year off to work overseas in Europe. That’s where she made the decision to go back to become a speech therapist. She completed a year of prerequisite courses at Michigan State University and attended graduate school at the University of Texas at Dallas. She enjoys traveling and thought it would be a great experience to go to school out of state. UTD offered a lot of externship opportunities with it being in such a large metropolis. She interned with preschoolers diagnosed with Autism and worked with patients with stroke and traumatic brain injury at Parkland Memorial Hospital. After graduate school, she moved to Connecticut where she worked for 2 ½ years at a skilled nursing facility. She later took on a travel position at another skilled nursing facility in Michigan. Her husband’s military career then brought she and her husband to Hawaii where she's been working for Oahu Speech since 2012. Samantha found her niche working with children.
