Monique S., M.A., SLP

Speech-Language Pathologist - Part Time

Monique attended San Diego State University for her undergraduate and graduate degrees. As a therapist, she loves seeing clients progress and make gains in their speech and language abilities. There is no better feeling than seeing a client who had difficulty communicating improve their skills while reducing their frustration level.

She can honestly say, she loves what she does and the career path she chose.  Outside of the KDA center, Monique loves to dance, travel and spend time with family and friends.
