Dan Sherwood is a clinical vocologist at the Johns Hopkins Voice Center. His two decades of treating and curing patients’ voice, body and breathing problems come after 13 years on-air on radio – he combines his helping profession with personal experience in knowing what vocal athletes need. Sherwood brings even more varied personal experience to his patients: he’s overcome the decades of damage incurred growing up in a dysfunctional family. He combines the knowledge and understanding gained from his master’s degree in speech pathology from Marquette University and studying voice at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music, with vocology certification from the National Center for Voice and Speech. Sherwood is also a certified Hanna Somatic Educator and Optimal Breathing(R) coach, and combines his clinical training with mind-body disciplines into a holistic approach to vocal therapy, and in conquering the effects of a dysfunctional family history. Sherwood presents at national and international conferences on how to incorporate mind-body practices into traditional vocal rehabilitation, to patients’ greatest benefit.
