Coming to Asia
Upon my graduation from Howard University with a masters degree in Communication Science and Disorders, I worked for Prince George’s County Public schools to fulfill the terms of my scholarship since they, incredibly kindly, paid for my education.
I knew I wanted to travel, however, so I moved to Japan. I worked in Okinawa and found it an incredible experience, but I eventually opened a private practice in Yokohama, Japan, serving clients throughout the Tokyo metropolitan area.
Japan was an amazing place to call home for several years, giving me the opportunity to travel all over the nation from Tokyo through Kyoto, Nagoya, Osaka, Hiroshima and more. It also was a wonderful base to explore Asia, going to countries such as South Korea, and Taiwan, and cities such as Shanghai and Hong Kong. I was at home there.
All that changed when I took my mother and brother on a trip across Asia…
