Julie M. Artigliere, Ph.D., CCC/SLP

Dr. Artigliere was born and raised in New Jersey, Julie M. Artigliere, Ph.D., CCC/SLP completed her undergraduate and graduate studies in Pennsylvania, and received her doctorate from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She met her husband in Colorado and they raised a family of two children. She enjoys outdoor activities, especially hiking, biking, golfing and SCUBA diving.

Dr. Artigliere founded the Center for Vocal Health, Inc., which has two locations: one in a local music studio and one in Peak ENT and Voice Center. The location in the Peak ENT and Voice Center is an outstanding opportunity that affords patients the added benefit of close communication between the physicians and the speech therapist. Many times, evaluations can be completed with both the physician and therapist attending. This provides the best possible care for our patients.

Dr. Artigliere specializes in vocal health, vocal rehabilitation, vocal cord dysfunction and chronic coughing. She has over 25 years experience helping singers, actors and other professional vocalists maintain or re-gain their voices. In addition, she has extensive experience in a wide range of clinical and research settings: private practice, hospital, rehabilitation centers, home health care, public school and university systems. Her specialty practice includes the treatment of a variety of voice disorders including those associated with vocal pathologies (vocal nodules and polyps, vocal cord paralysis), vocal over use, abuse or misuse, and paradoxical vocal cord movement (vocal cord dysfunction: VCD) for a range of patients including competitive athletes as well as anyone experiencing the symptoms of VCD neurological diseases (such as: Parkinson’s disease and Huntington’s disease) and spasmodic dysphonia.

Dr. Artigliere is Vital Stim certified (a neuromuscular electrical stimulation treatment for swallowing disorders) and laryngealvideostroboscopy trained (an evaluation of the function of the larynx). She is a member of the American Speech Hearing Language Association from which she received her Certificate of Clinical Competence and she holds a State of Colorado License in Speech-Language Pathology.

Dr. Artigliere is also committed to community volunteer work. In addition to several years of volunteer work in her children’s schools, she is a former Executive Director of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America, Denver Chapter and is a current Board of Trustees member of a local private high school for which she serves as Chairperson of the Recruitment/Retention Committee.
