Hi' I am Destinee
Hey everyone! I’m Destinee and I am from Las Cruces, NM! I recently moved to Arizona to explore new opportunities and pursue my career in speech therapy. I have my bachelor’s degree from New Mexico State University and was accepted into the master’s program at Eastern New Mexico University.
This is my fifth year working with children; I have previously worked as an Apprentice in Speech-Language (ASL) as well as a Preschool Teacher back in my hometown.
I just recently got married to my wife who I have known for over 18 years. We have three cats that we spoil probably more than we should, and enjoy watching sports, traveling, and trying new food. I spend most of my free time doing some sort of arts and crafts, playing with my cats, or exploring the new city.
What is the essence of what you do?
I build long lasting relationships with my clients and their families. I focus on communicating and making sure I am doing everything I can to better the future of these children.
I am super crafty, so you can catch me drawing, painting, embroidering, etc. I also love puzzles and binge watching tv/movie series.
