Hello, my name is Faye.

I am an LA-transplant from New York City. I was born in the Philippines and moved to America at 7 years of age. I grew up in Texas and California, having spent the majority of my post-adolescence and early adulthood in Northern California. I am a graduate of UC Berkeley with a degree in Integrative Biology. After college, I spent many years in research labs until I found passion in rehabilitation. I worked in a Physical Therapy clinic before my journey in Speech-Language Pathology began. I moved to Portland, OR and served as a SLPA in the school settings for one year prior to matriculating into graduate school. I received my Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology in New York City, where I gained extensive experience treating individuals across the lifespan.

My areas of expertise include early intervention, speech sound disorders, cognitive therapy, and feeding and swallowing disorders. Additionally, I have experience treating adults with aphasia, TBI, laryngectomy, and dysphagia. I am passionate in the habilitation and rehabilitation of all aspects relating to speech, language, voice, cognition, and feeding and swallowing.

I am an ACE Award recipient – an honor given to SLPs who achieve 70 hours of continuing education in a 3-year period – and a mentor to graduate students and Clinical Fellows to increase diversity in the field. Since joining BBPS, I have been honing my pediatric feeding and swallowing skills (e.g., transitioning foods/texture progression, picky eating, and sensory-related difficulties), as well as learning about tethered oral tissues and oromyofunctional disorders. I am currently completing competency in instrumentation for swallowing, and working on becoming a Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (BCS-S). 

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, water sports and tennis, visiting with friends, and exploring in and around the LA area.
