Meet Our Contributors

We have a great team of experienced writers who will talk about what's currently going on at the Center and, in some cases, tell you about plans for the future.

Rita Tintera is Executive Director of the Center for Hearing & Speech.

A native St. Louisan, Rita attended Fontbonne University.  She has worked at the Center since 1970 in a variety of capacities. This is her 20th year serving the Center as Executive Director.

Although funding sources and number of clients served has grown steadily during her tenure, Rita says the mission of the organization remains what it was when the center was first founded:  helping individuals with communications disorders regardless of one’s ability to pay.   

Martha Coleman is Communications and Volunteer Manager of the Center for Hearing & Speech.

A native St. Louisan, Martha graduated from Kirkwood High School in 2005 and Truman State University in 2009.  She has worked at the Center in various capacities for the past five years.
In her current role, and among other duties, she recruits and trains volunteers and develops and executes communications strategies across print and social media platforms.

Martha’s guilty pleasure:  watching ABC’s Bachelor In Paradise, which is just about to air its final episode of the season. Newly engaged, she and her fiance' are planning a fall 2015 wedding.     

Julie Conrey is a new volunteer in the Communications and Marketing Department at the Center for Hearing & Speech. 

A native of Louisville, Kentucky, the mother of four is a freelance writer, editor and blogger. 

She resides in Chesterfield with her husband Kevin, daughter Mariah, two dogs and a year-old-plus cat named Tubby who sometimes graces family members with his ‘pleasant’ disposition. 

Kelsey Dentinger was the Center's marketing volunteer this summer but after accepting a job at KSDK News Channel 5 as a Production Assistant, she plans to stay with us as a contributor to our blog!

She recently earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree from DePauw University, majoring in political broadcast journalism.

Kelsey spends her free time playing with her dog, Ziggy Joe Toronto, watching Netflix and enjoying St. Louis's many festivals.
