Jennie D

I am so excited to be part of the Del Amigo and Transitions Program team!  I have worked with SRVUSD since October 2015.  I love helping students use their voice to participate in meaningful and functional daily activities, which includes everything from community outings, job related activities, and even casual conversations.  I am passionate about working with students who use Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) devices, and helping students learn those hidden rules behind social language.


I am originally from Tracy, California, but earned by B.S. in biology and psychology from UC San Diego, and later my M.A. in speech-language pathology from Northwestern University.  When I’m not working I love hiking, going to the beach, playing with my dog Dobby, and planning my upcoming wedding in September 2017!
