Tatiana’s journey with speech therapy started in 2001 when she graduated in Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences at the Medical School of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. The past 19 years have been an amazing journey and the process of acquiring further qualifications and undertaking extensive training have given her the chance to move abroad, where she experienced a variety of clinical settings and cultures.

She moved to Dubai in 2009 and since then she has been working as a Speech therapist for some of the top healthcare providers and schools. Her educational background includes a MA in Linguistics by the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, a MSc in Clinical linguistics by the University of Potsdam in Germany and a BA in Speech, language and Hearing Sciences by the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil. She is a licensed therapist by the Brazilian Speech and Language therapy Council (CRFA-SP) since 2001 and Dubai Health Authorities since 2009.

Tatiana is fluent in English and Portugese and she can offer therapeutic support in both languages.
