CSJ is a special, fun place, a place where every day remarkable things happen.
When growing up in the Bronx my parents always instilled in my sister and I the importance of working hard and getting an education. I can remember that academics did not come easy, but I had an inner focus and work ethic to succeed.
As a teenager, I worked as a camp counselor for children with special needs and that experience shaped my decisions about my future endeavors. In early 2000, I established my boutique agency with its mission being to provide specialized and high quality services to families.
As founder and Executive Director of CSJ and a licensed Speech and Language Pathologist I have worked tirelessly with children and families to help them "find their voices" and to communicate more effectively with others. I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University over thirty years ago. I am an expert in the field of speech, language and motor-speech disorders and lecture and train others around the world. I am one of 42 PROMPT Instructors in the world and have been putting PROMPT into practice for the last 15 years. I have trained doctors, nurses, speech and language therapists, psychological, teachers, facilitators and parents in Ghana, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mauritius. To further my vision, in 2006, I founded the not-for-profit organization, The Center for Small Jewels Institute for Education, Training and Enrichment.
