What do you enjoy most about working at Thinking Organized?
I love getting to know my clients and being able to tailor therapy to their unique needs and interests. There’s no better feeling than watching a student grow and be able to apply the tools they’ve worked on to all aspects of their life.

What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why?
My greatest achievement was receiving my Masters in Speech and Language Pathology and thereby fulfilling a dream of being able to help students succeed in the classroom and beyond.

What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about
I love food and trying new restaurants. I have a running list of all my favorite places for DC and places I’ve traveled to. I never get tired of giving restaurant recommendations and I have a “best bites” list that helps me point people in the direction of a surprising/amazing dish. I am currently on the hunt for the best dumpling in DC.
