She has worked as a speech-language pathologist in various settings, including the Fairfax County Health Department in Fairfax, VA, special education schools in Brooklyn, NY, and Springfield, VA, as well as a private practice in Alexandria, VA. After many years of working with the pediatric population, she decided to pursue her long time interest in accent modification to assist adults in communicating more effectively.
