My Story

I started at Blue Bird Day working as a therapeutic assistant and I am loving it! I am going into my senior year in college and have always dreamed of working for children with special needs hence why I want to be a Speech Language Pathologist. I also have a passion for learning languages and currently know three. I find it extremely rewarding working with these children and hope I can be as good as all the therapists at Blue Bird when I am one myself!
