The ability to communicate effectively plays a large role in determining our access to the world around us. I enjoy determining and using the strengths of each individual student to encourage them to be the most successful communicator they can be, in whatever form that may take. I am passionate about working with students and families, and love being a part of their achievements no matter how big or small.

Teresa Quiroga, School Psychologist

As the daughter of an adult immigrant to the United States, I was able to directly experience the importance of education as a way of building a life that includes meaningful work, equity, and growth. My own educational experiences have taught me the importance of learning about your unique learning profile and how to learn about learning. Although dyslexia runs in my family we are all avid readers. I love being in schools and collaborating with students, teachers, and families to support success and lifelong learning.

Watching them celebrate their growth and progress as they work towards their goals is the icing on the cake!

Clinical Fellow

Communication is the root of everything: how we relate to each other, build community, state our needs, talk about our feelings, tell jokes, interview for jobs, and share memories. Sometimes we communicate using our words. Other times we may communicate using a device such as our iPad or phone, sharing pictures, sharing music, playing a game, laughter, or simply a hug. My role as an SLP is to cultivate the best multi-modal communication approach for you and your family. I will listen attentively to help you say what you want to say when you want to say it. Your thoughts and feelings matter. I want to hear your wonderful ideas and so does the world!

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow” -Anthony D’Angelo. I strongly believe that all people are unique and each individual child’s strengths and needs should be looked at as just that. One of the core reasons I love being a school psychologist is that I have the opportunity to help students, families, and school teams to recognize and celebrate all growth and progress. I believe that every student has the capacity to learn and make growth at their own pace. We should meet students where they are at throughout their educational journey and help them to discover their passions and potential while supporting them to have the necessary tools and skills that they need to engage with their learning.

I have been interested in working in special education for as long as I can remember. My oldest brother has autism and does not talk.

As a child, I took pride in helping him to act appropriately so that he could join our family on outings like trips to the mall or attending church. I am a school psychologist because I want to help students and parents understand each child’s unique set of strengths and weaknesses to achieve success now and in the future.

In the beginning of my career, my “why” was to advocate for vulnerable populations. I became a school psychologist because I wanted all children with disabilities to have equitable access to a free and appropriate public education. Today, my “why” is so much more than that! In my experiences with students, staff, and families, I have built a passion for strengths-based approaches to diverse abilities and cultures. I believe in educating families on their rights, and being a proponent for IDEA, ADA, and state law as it pertains to schools. Additionally, as the parent of a child with a disability, I know what it feels like to be on the “other side of the table.” This personal experience has enlightened the ways in which I perform my own job duties as a school psychologist with regard to team collaboration, communication, and sensitivity.

I believe that every day should be about being a better version of our previous self. As we become better versions of ourselves it enables us to empower others toward personal growth and success. By becoming a better me, I can support others in becoming a better them. This, in turn, may lead to them empowering their own families and communities. It is a growth mindset that encourages others to live with intent, purpose, and personal meaning, and to spread the flame of hope and potential. The simplest way to say this is: “Kids (all people) do well if they can,” so let’s give them the tools so they can.

Before I became a speech therapist, I held a position in a special education classroom in our city’s lowest-income school. All of my students presented with severe communication needs. I watched as they thrived when provided with different modes of communication, like AAC. These children were suddenly empowered with their new means of communication, and their families were too. I learned so much from my students’ flexibility and hard work as they familiarized themselves and persevered with daunting new tasks. Many caregivers shared stories of watching their child tell someone their name for the first time as a result of speech therapy. Those children, teachers, speech therapists, and caregivers taught me how to provide a whole-person approach to each child while remaining flexible and patient. I am grateful to be in this field.

Communication is required if you want to live independently in this world. As I reflect on the things I value most in my life, and on the experiences my friends and family have had, I observe the unfortunate opportunity for people’s choices to be overlooked, and sometimes consciously ignored. It gives me great satisfaction to see my clients grow in their ability to effect change in their own lives as a result of their communication skills.

Communication is the foundation of all human interaction and the key to personal success. I feel privileged that I get to play a part in helping kids find ways to express themselves. I get to share in their joy when they make progress and reach communication milestones.

Julie Poole, School Psychologist

I work to understand each individual child as a whole person, their strengths, and their current challenges in order to help them to be better understood by others. Knowing that when we gain an in-depth understanding of a child, we can work together as a collaborative team to build a path that will support their growth, and help them to grow and bloom all of their unique gifts and potential.

Magdalene Lima-Fiallos, Speech-Language Pathologist

CCC-SLP

I do this because I’m driven to find that hidden treasure inside of every human being I meet, especially kids. Empowering children to communicate enables us to truly get to know them and discover their strengths, creativity, talent, likes, dislikes, joys, and aspirations. In the process, they learn about themselves and that what they have to give to the world is valuable and unique. I’m a treasure-hunter!

I feel like my purpose in life is to take care of others. To make a positive impact on someone’s life, even in a small way, is super meaningful to me. Knowing that I have the ability to care for and to make others happy is what also brings me happiness. I hope to one day become an SLP and continue helping others.

Ashley Northam, Speech-Language Pathologist

CCC-SLP

I am very much a whole person-centered therapist. I believe in looking at all areas and factors that may contribute, or affect a client’s growth and development. I thrive on solving problems and seeing clients make progress. I love helping someone else achieve what they did not think was possible. It is so rewarding to look back with a client and see how far they’ve come in time. I love this profession in that there is never a dull day, a monotonous routine, or mindless work. There are definitely challenges that push me but I also love the search to “figure it out.” I get the privilege to work with a wide variety of people and teams with many skills and abilities and walk with them on a path to make a difference in their lives, whatever that may be. I absolutely love my job.

Megan Stephens, Speech-Language Pathologist

CCC-SLP

I work with young people because their sense of identity, self-worth, and self-esteem are in a vulnerable state. They need allies who support them, rally behind them, see their potential, and sometimes push them. I work in the field of communication because I think communication skills are a huge contributor to positive self-esteem and academic and social success.

Sarah Nicholson, School Psychologist

NCSP

I’m an advocate for all things progress. I’m also an advocate for personal connections as the key to motivating students. I’m here to support parents as they learn about their child’s needs and to help teachers understand the kids that challenge them, so they can find a way to connect and motivate them. I’m also here for the kids who feel like no one else understands them; to listen to and encourage them through tough times.

Katelynn Macedo, Speech-Language Pathology Assistant

Communication is a privilege humans can easily take for granted. I believe every child deserves to feel as though their opinions and thoughts matter and can be heard. My goal is to help children reach their milestones, regardless of how big or small.

Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear, so says George Addair. And it’s true. I built Hello to build bridges for thousands of children. And at moments it was terrifying. But despite any moment of trepidation, I could always close my eyes and imagine the small hand of my five year old daughter clasping mine on the walk to school. I started this company to have the freedom to walk her to school. But I built this company recognizing children needed an advocate. And parents working for me needed to have their own children valued, too. Building bridges is about moving someone from here to further down the road. And that’s what we do at Hello. We each take someone’s to take the hand to walk them to where they need to go.
