Personal:

Melissa grew up in San Juan, PR and misses the beach dearly. She loves acting and takes every opportunity she can to do so. Besides being an exceptional speech-language pathologist, Melissa has a variety of talents. She previously performed with ComedySportz in Provo, Utah, she dabbles in theater. She dabbles in theater, film and voice-over work when she can find the time. She also loves jogging and yoga as well as singing and songwriting. Melissa is taking a trip to Mongolia and China this summer to visit friends and see some of the sites she missed during her year and half stint as a service missionary for the LDS church in Mongolia (1999-2000). While Melissa is looking forward to her trip, she feels she needs to brush up on the language...it's been a while.

Experience with Bilingual Therapies:

I have very much enjoyed working with Bilingual Therapies. The introductory training (Bilingual U. and symposium) was a wonderful way to kick off the first year. It was very organized, informative, and even fun. I mean, c'mon, Puerto Vallarta!? I'm not complaining. It was also a great opportunity to get to know other clinicians in my shoes and develop a bit of a network and bond with them. Then, after a year in Philadelphia, when a change in life plans occurred, B.T. was so supportive and helpful in helping me obtain a position in Utah, a state they had never placed before. Overall, I feel that B.T. is a wonderfully supportive company. All the people running the show in Skokie really seem to be very competent, professional, and friendly. Whenever I call with a question or for help with something, they are quick to respond, thorough in their answers, and cheerful while helping. It's been a pleasure to be an employee of Bilingual Therapies.
