Speech and Language Pathologist

Jessica is a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist who helps kids build better relationships with family, friends, and peers through improved communication skills. After spending nearly a decade working in education, she has seen the positive academic and social benefits that children receive when they come to have a “seat at the table,” or so to speak, through increased expression and improved comprehension. She believes in fighting for the underdog and those who have historically been under-served and under-represented. 

Jessica holds multiple credentials with bilingual authorization from the state of California. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California, a Master’s degree in Education from Loyola Marymount University, and a Master’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Loma Linda University.
