Fun, family and speech therapy a go-go! Maybe I am not your “typical” SLP….I am however extremely motivated and love my job, so maybe I am typical after all! My twitter handle @ndnspeechmom describes me perfectly…
NDN – This is a slang term for the (politically incorrect) word Indian; meaning First Nations (Native American). Although I refer to myself and fellow natives with this term I generally do not appreciate being called “Indian” by nonnatives because depending on tone it comes off as a slur. I was born and raised on a reservation and am a proud member of Thunderchild First Nation.
SPEECH – I am an (overly) enthusiastic Speech Pathologist. I received my master’s degree while I was going to graduate school at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I miss the Southern weather whenever winter rolls around here in Saskatchewan.
MOM– I am a proud mommy to 4 little “angels” (Cielo, Jr, Diego and Dylan)
Ok, maybe ndnspeechmom doesn’t describe me fully so I will try fill in a few more blanks. I am married to a wonderful man who willingly came to live in snowy Canada. (His hometown is Acapulco–seriously I think he is crazy to leave such a beautiful place.) My addictions include M.A.C. makeup, LUSH, television series on DVD and laughing too loudly in public. I am also a ninja. (I wish…I’d be a terrible ninja because I talk too much.)
