She received her Doctorate in Communications Disorders and Linguistics from Louisiana State University and her medical degree from the University of Louisville. Upon joining the University of Louisville faculty in 2000, Dr. Remmel assumed various leadership roles, rising to Chair of the Department of Neurology. One of her passions is in research, and she has served as a Principle Investigator on over 20 clinical trials and grants.
