Jennifer Holland is the founder and CEO of Throat Scope. She created Throat Scope in 2009 "after a trip to the doctors with her sick 15-month-old child. The doctor asked her to restrain her child as he tried to open the child’s mouth with a wooden tongue depressor in one hand, and a penlight in the other. This not-so-good experience led Jennifer to Invent Throat Scope the device you see today and inspired Jennifer to create more diagnostic solutions within the business to aid in examinations both in home and in healthcare environments." (ThroatScope.com) Today, the Throat Scope is used in a variety of practices, especially speech & feeding therapy!

So my life is mass chaos 🤣."
