Speech Langauge Pathologist

Vidya attended the University of California at Irvine for her undergraduate training, graduating with a double Bachelors in Political Science and Sociology, with a minor in International Relations. Her experience as a Court Appointed Special Advocate at Voices for Children and her love for working with children led her to pursue her Master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology at Columbia University, New York. Vidya enjoys the creative aspects of treating children ranging from birth to 25. Arts and crafts provide a way for Vidya to fashion games and other materials based on the child's interest so that learning is an enjoyable process for the child. In her spare time, Vidya enjoys a variety of hobbies and interests, including (but not limited to!) cooking, baking (and subsequently eating the food she cooks and bakes!), reading, zentangling, cleaning and organizing (nerd alert!), and walking along the beautiful waters of sunny Southern California.
