Hello Sharks! I’m excited to be a part of the special education team at Moorefield Station Elementary School. This is my fifth year working in Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS). Past four years I have been at Moorefield Station E.S.
This is my 14th year working in the school setting. Prior to joining LCPS, I worked with the Fairfax County Early intervention Services for 6 years. I graduated in the year 2001 from All India Institute of Speech & Hearing, Mysore, India. I got my Certificate of Clinical Competence (CCC) from the American Speech & Hearing Association in December 2003.
Some of the other school districts I’ve worked for include District of Columbia Public Schools, Montgomery County Public Schools, Los Angeles Independent School District and Houston Independent School District.
I live in Herndon with my husband and twin daughters who will be starting third grade this year. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, listening to music, reading and traveling. I am happy to work with the students at Moorefield Station. Working with children is my passion and I am thankful to get the opportunity to work with the wonderful team.
Welcome, Sharks! I am one of the two Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) this year at Moorefield Station. I am a licensed, ASHA certified Speech Language Pathologist. I provide services to kids from pre-K through 5th grade. This is my seventh year working as an SLP at Moorefield Station.
I am a native of Loudoun County. I received my undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of Virginia and my masters degree in Speech Language Pathology from Radford University. I have experience working with the pediatric population within school, outpatient, and early intervention settings. All of these settings focus on coaching for teachers, parents, and guardians to facilitate language and social growth for children.
I am grateful for the presence of meaningful relationships in my own life. I feel passionate about helping children learn the skills needed to foster their own relationships. I facilitate this through a combination of applying my techniques in training with my genuine love and compassion for children and their families. This passion directed me to receive additional training through the PROMPT institute, SOS Approach to Feeding, and Michelle Garcia Winner’s Social Thinking. These trainings emphasized the importance of treating the whole child within the cognitive-linguistic, social-emotional, and motor domains to meet individualized and functional goals.
