My Story

I first learned about the field of speech-language pathology when I was an attorney for the New York City Department of Education, focusing on special education law. I wanted to help children and families directly, and I saw that there was a great need for speech therapists. I took a couple of pre-requisite courses, and just kept on going! After graduate school, I have been working in public schools with students aged 4 – 21.

My Professional Goals

  1. I plan to keep up with the latest research and interventions for early childhood.
  2. I would also like to learn how to support other clinical disciplines while providing speech therapy.

My Education

Master of Science, Speech and Hearing Sciences,
University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill

My Blue Bird Day

I started working for Blue Bird Day in October 2023. I am excited to help prepare my clients for the public school setting.

Blue Bird Day

Blue Bird Day fosters socialization, sensory regulation, and pre-academic learning in children ages 2–7 years in therapeutic rotations that simulate  preschool and kindergarten settings. Our compassionate therapists practice a relationship-based and family-centered approach, provide parent training, and collaborate on goals and individualized intensive treatment plans for your child.

We believe in a collaborative and multi-disciplinary team approach to therapy.  A team of occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, dietitians, developmental therapists, behavioral therapists, physical therapists, and therapeutic assistants are created for each child to ensure child and family are fully supported and the best possible results are achieved.  

Options for individualized, group and virtual therapy sessions are available as well.
